I don't think I should have a 1/4 gap under the bottom edge of the extension should I?

How do I fix this? Tap the metal out? Add filler metal?

The extension fits great along the outer perimeter (NO GAPS)
The problem is the gap under the extension.

The factory gap of the deck lid & the dutchman is VERY wide, scoot the lid out to line it up with the 1/4 extension, if you need pics let me know

That's not my problem. The problem I have is approx 1/4 gap at the bottom of the extension. And right now when I close the deck lid, it overhangs the tailpanel by that same 1/4 (look at the 2 pics in reply #2)

I'm not sure but my tail panel may be out of position.

Could I get a dimension from the deck filler to the outer edge of the tail panel measuring in the center of the trunk opening?
Like in these pics.

I will add this, the tail panel goes over the 1/4 panel end IIRC

Just wondering, is membership falling off? Maybe it's me but it kinda seems like people are abandoning this forum. I HOPE I AM WRONG!

Yes. Message boards have been obsolete for a good 10 years now. People seem to prefer to talk about this stuff on social media platforms.

I totally agree. But my preferences do not shape the world. They stay busy just enough for guys like us to stick around until they serve no purpose and we move on. Picking up the odd newbie from time to time to make it appear relevant. It is not just this hobby. It is most of them these days.

Thanks Charlie,
I am within 1/8 of your dimensions and when the deck lid is closed it looks just like your pic. Flush to slightly over hanging the trim.
