Incorrect rear engine lid
Rear engine lid spring missing
Most likely incorrect rear fenders with snow flake holes remaining
Door window moldings painted
Poor amateur paint job inside and out
Passenger vent window lever broken off
Driver and passenger door skin metal cracked at vent window posts
No hood or engine lid weatherstrips
Driver and passenger doors not aligned with rear quarter panels
Wiper arms and blades missing
Missing grommets where bumper brackets exit fenders
Missing interior door and window handle escutcheons
Shitty carpet kit, no holes for front heater outlets
No door hinge screw plugs
