What is the proper or common gap between the rear of the trunk lid and the filler panel?
Gap should be the same as the sides.
Cool, Im also trying to figure out why my 3 piece spoiler doesnt fit right...I have the end caps where they fit...but the gaps between the center piece and the end pieces is tight.....Do people sand the edges to get a perfect gap?
Those fiberglass pieces rarely fit perfectly from the factory.
The center piece is often a bit wavy in the rear too.
It’s not uncommon to require some filler and sanding to get the gaps even and all of the surfaces smooth.
The spoiler fit was not perfect from the factory when I ordered new Z28’s in 1977,78 and 80. That’s the way it was and I was ok with it. I wasn’t going to mess with it.
Where I have the ends, they fit the 1/4s very well. It’s the gaps between the center and the ends, I’ll post a pic
What you think?
That is already a better fit than most of them when they were new.
If you have to have it "Perfect"... Sand a bit to get the gap even.
You could probably fold a piece of sandpaper and draw it through the gap a few times to take a little bit off both pieces where it's tightest.
Personally... I would leave it alone. (Since those parts are already painted.)
Looks perfect to me.
