    Need a trunk lid out to SA-Austin area or east to Tx-LA border that I can come and get. Maybe DFW.

    Spoiler holes preferred but no hole is ok.
    A few minor dings is ok but no rust that has to be cut out.

    If I remember correctly the holes are different between the one piece and 3 piece spoilers, just a FYI

    Hey Chuck,
    I have three trunk lids I can bring with me when we meet up next month.
    One has spoiler holes for the short spoiler and two don't have any holes. They have various issues but are all useable, to me at least. You can have your pick for free since you were nice enough to offer me the rocker panel moldings. It's worth a try to see if you can use one. If not, it's no problem.

    Oh, I'm pretty sure you have the three piece spoiler, but I can bring the short spoiler lid anyway if you want.

    I think Chuck, is actually using the short spoiler, that was the reason I mentioned it, as I got the wrong one for mine, well the right one, however, I chose to use the short spoiler, and had to drill holes in my new paint to get it to mount, HAA HA

    Thanks, Dave. I'm calling Chuck in a few minutes to work out some details.
    I plan on removing the three piece spoiler on my 71 and using the short spoiler I have. I just want the 71 different from the 73Z which has the three piece spoiler.

    Was able to repair the damage to be a bit more then acceptable. Thought it better to leave it alone now

    LH still has a small high area at the rear but the spoiler covers it

    RH: Still some high area showing

    Is that with the trunk seal in place? If not just wait, I am still working on getting mine to not hump up with the seal in place

    The seal is installed. Before installing the seal

    mound of bed sheet under the side and pressed down on the rear
    installed seal
    removed seal.
    Repeated this several times till I got the condition in the above photos
