Character error 

When the owner of "Black Moon" is describing the car at The Betsy, he says the body is made from "Kelvar". The super-strong plastic is "Kevlar", not Kelvar.

As Quint reaches the top of tower #2 (from the stairway), his jumpsuit appears to be quite dirty/dusty around the shoulders (light colored dust). In the next shot, the suit is again strikingly black.

All the windows of the Black Moon appear solid black in every scene, until inside the freight elevator, where they suddenly become clear glass.

Earl slices into the insulation on the video cable, spreading the jacket open to reveal the cabling inside. In the next shot, he is still slicing into the insulation jacket.

Just when Nina is about to drive off in the Black Moon after the theft of the cars at the Betsy, she presses various starting buttons on the dash, however it is clear that it is not Nina's hand doing the pressing as her finger nails have suddenly become much shorter than the long nails she displays in almost all of the movie.

About an hour in to the film, when Quint arrives at John's trailer, a beige sedan is parked facing the building. When Ringer's goons throw Quint off the porch a minute later, he lands on the trunk of a differently-shaped and much browner vehicle (that has no back window, presumably for safety reasons). A few seconds later, Quint gets dragged off the hood of the original beige car.

At the beginning, Quint flees with his car while people is firing guns at him. Bullets break rear windshield and left rear lights. Soon after, Quint is waiting in his car, and a rear shot shows rear windshield still broken, but the left rear lights is now intact.

Miscellaneous 

The "white Rolls Royce" referred to by 2 posters is in fact a Studebaker Hawk. Tommy Lee even relates that his father owned a Studebaker after he hitches a ride at the disco.

Revealing mistakes 

During scenes filmed from the backseat of Quint's Dodge Daytona, you can see an indicator light on the dash revealing that the hatch is open. Perhaps this is to make room for the rig, camera or crew.

During the opening sequence, Quint runs towards a glass door to escape, however, he clearly stops well short of the door. The ensuing shot is from a side angle of (him) bursting through the glass door in a jumping fashion, as if in one continuous motion.
