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

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.

could the studs on the end cap be bottoming out , they have a step in them, might need to hammer in around the holes that the studs go through, I know mine looked counter sunk in that entire inner area

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!

I use to come in here alot but not so much anymore due to too many Idiots & Assclowns in here that just want to stir up trouble & provide no useful information, just want to be Instigators. The Moderators should permanently Ban these useless trouble makers instead of just deleting there insulting post & giving them a Warning or temporary banning them for a week. I'm on other websites & never seen a more unfriendly Bunch that instead of Welcoming newcomers they lynch mob them with insults & chase them out of here. Like the guy Advertising his Wing Car in here for sale that got ran out of here. Not cool but acceptable in here. What a shame. LEON.

Don, I noticed you appear to have the extensions taped on. Have you put the nuts on the back as well?
I'm just wondering as if you haven't perhaps tightening the nuts will pull the quarter extensions in.

I would go and check mine but I won't be home until the weekend. My car is all new sheet metal at the back but I don't recall having this issue.

Like the guy Advertising his Wing Car in here for sale that got ran out of here. Not cool but acceptable in here. What a shame. LEON.


I have noticed this also.

Don, I noticed you appear to have the extensions taped on. Have you put the nuts on the back as well?
I'm just wondering as if you haven't perhaps tightening the nuts will pull the quarter extensions in.

I would go and check mine but I won't be home until the weekend. My car is all new sheet metal at the back but I don't recall having this issue.
Hey that's a good suggestion, I will check it using the nuts

Hmm. I kind of wish I hadn't said anything now. I hope nothing breaks Don!

Here's a pic of my unrestored original. It kinda looks like it had some seam sealer filling the gap. If I still had it I'd take a much closer look at it for you. LEON.

That does look like seam sealer!  Shocked

Very interesting!  Has anyone else seen this?

I've just had a look at my quarter extensions and the passenger side fit perfect without any fixing nuts. The driver's side looked the same as yours. It looked to have a bit of twist to it compared to the othe side so I twisted it back and gave it a tap with a soft hammer over a block of wood. It took very little to move it and it fits nice now!

mine looked similar to yours, though not as bad.
You need to get the tailpanel to move out towords the extension caps. I was able to get a long heavy dolly and a few carefully placed wacks make everything better.

Looking at hemi-hamtons photo it kind of looks like it may have some hammer and dolly work in that area. Unless it's a trick of the light.
