(b) Each intermediate manufacturer of an incomplete automobile shall furnish, in the manner specified in § 529.4(c), to the subsequent manufacturer of that automobile the document required by § 529.4(b) regarding that automobile.

(c) Each intermediate manufacturer that is required by paragraph (b) of this section to furnish an addendum to a document required by § 529.4(b) shall, within 10 days after completing its manufacturing operations, send a copy of the document and addendum to the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency and to the manufacturer previously considered under this part to be the manufacturer of the automobile.

(4) The intermediate manufacturer shall attach to the incomplete automobile in accordance with 40 CFR part 600 a fuel economy label identical to the label that is required under this part to have been prepared by the manufacturer considered under this part to be the manufacturer of that automobile if:
(i) The portion of the body including the windshield and front seat side windows was added to the incomplete automobile by a previous manufacturer;
