I think the wheel spacing issue is due to the frame being too long and as for the gear levers, I too had to leave them off as there is no way you can put the cab floor on with them attached (I built the 7 Late). Also Trumpeter flubbed up the front fenders on the original release and have never fixed them on any subsequent release although the problem is well documented. Your off to a good start.
