Re: Turn signal lever

There is also a difference in how they made the flat spot for loosening / tightening it. The original is squished like it went through a roller, while the repro is more like a machined cut. Also, the end knob on the repro is screwed on, while the knob on the original is pressed on. Wow, somebody's ...

If someone inspects the car and brings issues to our attention we will of course work on price. He really wants to sell.
