Known issues-
People you don't know will come up to you and compliment the car and want to take a picture of it
Windshield wiper motor is installed but no wipers/capped off for look
Chrome on grille is peeling in some areas. Not noticeable unless you get within 12" of it and even then you may not notice
Transmission in good working condition but shifts quickly at high RPM- some may like that and some may want to lower stall speed in converter or via rear end gears
Fuel gauge not working. Ohm range on gauge is different from sending unit. Bought an adaptor to mate them but haven't got it working yet.
Factory radio not hooked (by design) up but LED light is working to light up front to match gauges.
Temp gauge reads hotter than it is. Sensor located on back of engine which isn't ideal. I took readings with temp gun at thermostat and radiator and it was normal. Electric fans kick on at 195 degrees as they should.
