I also noticed my trunk not closing like it should. If I adjust the latch any further the trunk won’t close at all, unles I slam it. By slam I mean as in both hands and holding it down.

    Looks to be too far back on the lid. May be the angle of the pic. Try loosening it and move forward. If it doesn't move, you may need to elongate the holes. I use thin rubber sink washers under the three pieces. Lets water escape.

    Trunk and filler panel look like they may be too far forward on the left, hard to tell from the pic. Do you have any better pics of that area?

    Simply drilling the holes for the spoiler based on a template will give so...so results. I'm pretty sure there was a "how to" posted on here a while ago. Install the center spoiler and line up the side pieces to match it. The truck lid looks tweeked closed. But it also appears the side pieces are not lined up properly

    Can you get a picture of the trunk looking straight down on it. use a ladder if needed to get up high enough so we can see it completely.
