What Russ and John J. said. I had the same problem with a set on my son's 
Roadster. We put the originals back in, and it's good to go. I think the quality 
control people were sleeping on this this one. I don't know where you got your 
kit, but it seems this is the kit's shortfall. The kits I put in my Notch

since closed their doors). I've heard you can use bug needle and seats too, but 
don't quote me on that. :O Just something to keep in mind.
