    Tail Panel Replacement / Deck Lid Alignment?

    Hello, my buddy placed an aluminum shim in between the trunk hinge and the trunk, but I'm sure it's not the correct way to do it. I haven't been working in the area of the vehicle. I haven't finished it. I've been out a while. Sorry if this is not the answer you're looking for.

    Tail Panel Replacement / Deck Lid Alignment?

    Hello Cisco, sorry for the late reply. For the center of this area, my buddy and I raised it by placing a small bottle jack and gently raising it up and down until we got to a desired height. What my buddy did for the hinge portion of the trunk, he machined out an aluminum piece shim. But it...

    Hey Perkalator, very nice...I like how it's coming along. What radiator set up did you go with. I saw up above that it is a 3 row dual fan, but what brand did you go with. Jeff

    Hey Jerry, I have a similar initials I found in my gas tank canister. I've had it off for a while now since I'm SLOWLY restoring it. I ran into your thread. When I was scrolling down and found your thread, I remember that mine has the same initials.

    Tail Panel Replacement / Deck Lid Alignment?

    Thanks 70ZED, my buddy and I finally got it hammered or "Jacked out". Then I ran into another issue. I'm using a 3-piece spoiler. I guess when I cut up a perfectly new AMD quarter panel and attached it to the factory original quarter panel something went wrong. The left side spoiler isn't...

    Tail Panel Replacement / Deck Lid Alignment?

    Thanks Bill, Jbloake, and dichard for the suggestions. It worked perfectly. Hopefully, someone out there that runs into this situation will help. It closed the gap and I managed to tweak the upper deck filler to make all of the body components level out.

    Tail Panel Replacement / Deck Lid Alignment?

    Tail Panel Replacement / Deck Lid Alignment?

    Hello Dichard, the back seat cross brace was left out and cut off because of the package tray replacement. I think what happened was that when I replaced the rear package tray, I didn't measure the height of it for replacement to take into account the upper deck filler that the trunk hinges...
