Re: Who's running a Mitchell Transmission?

Everyone seems happy with the Mitchell, but is there anyone who wishes they didn't swap out to a Mitchell? I am just trying to get a feel before dropping big dollars.

Re: Turn signal issue.

I will try that. I had one originally but they would not flash at all. I was told it was because of the LEDs. I don't get why they work with the engine not running but not with it running. What's...

Re: setting body, doors, and hood

Thank you for your help. I am now on day two and not sure what I have done. Seems I get the doors fitting and then the hood does not. Hmm. Maybe day three! It truly is not an easy job.
