Bought the JL Retro release of the Torino Talladega, Friday. Opened it today. I really liked the finish and detail of this release. My disapointment came when I inspected the wheels , the left rear set way to high in the wheel well . I dont have my magnifing setup at home, but near as I can tell something is keeping the axle from setting in the slot in the base on the left side or the slot is not cut in the left side. Now I'll have to drill the rivets and disassemble it to see what needs to be done to correct it . Wish they would have caught this at the factory. Errors may be cool for the HW crowd but not to me, and especialy on a $4 JL.
Sorry for the gripe, I really do like the JL casting of this car.

Well the problem was the axle was crimped to the base on the right but not on the left. Had to undo the crimp on the right and widen the left slot slightly so the axle would sit in the right place. JB Weld Kwik-ed it back in place.
I guess since I'm used to doing warranty work on 1:1 GM cars this was a piece of cake. Wonder who I sumit the warrant claim to. :tongue:
