Has anybody built the new 1950 Olds and had issues with the fitting of the interior? If so can you explain what you had to do to fix it so it does fit. If you have photos of your progrest even better.

One of the guys in my club noticed the interior will pop the rear quarter windows lose if you aren't careful. If you are having issues, give us some more info if you want more specific info.

John,
I noticed that the interior mounted windshield and windows will bind on interior side panels and dash. I had to grind off some of the top edge of the dash because it hit the windshield. Try to mount the windshield as high as possible. As for the quarter windows I actually notched the rear door panels a bit to move up so the front door panels lined up flush with the top door sills.
I've also done a Promolite resin of the same car and it even takes a bit more grinding and trimming.
Stay with it, you'll get it!
