In WAY over my head assembling Giant TCR Advanced


I have assembled older bicycles, and decided I would assemble my new bike by myself. I found a TCR Advanced frameset, brand new, that I purchased and began building. The basics are in, but now that I am getting to the group, I'm realizing the frame came with a bunch of little doodads that I don't know their purpose for. Any help is appreciated, the pictures are below.

1. A strap painted with faux carbon fiber treatment

2. Clear stickers

3. some plastic connectors

4. two similar plastic shield-shaped pieces

5. two sets of these in wrapped plastic bags

6. One of these which looks similar to the spacers on my tubeless valve stems.

Thanks in advance,
