My seats won't stay put......they keep on popping up ....it drives me crazy.....but other than that it's a great guide to follow if you're building a Kitt...I'm thinking of making turbo boost rockets for my lifesize kitt model..

I'll agree with Stevie mark on that issue. The seats are a real pain in the a**. Otherwise, a great model. Click here for detailed photos: http://knightrideronline.com/news/2013/ ... nd_143.php

The only flaw I had on mine is the drivers seat. It just won't stay down like it used to anymore. So I actually unscrewed the car a few days ago and stripped it apart to take a look at the ejector seat mechanism. Its a simple fix due to a loose screw. I tightened the screw for the one on the driver seat and now the seat stays in place. I won't be playing around with the ejector seats anymore though since I feel it might come loose again.

Some others have had problems with paint, the t-tops not sitting in too well when closed and the pop up headlights as well. But the most common problems I've heard for the model are the ejector seats and the t-tops.
