Here is my driver’s side . Note: this side needed about 3/16” of spacing at the rear mount. Has been 2 years, and has not needed any further adjustment.

If your rails are ok, pull the rear tires off and look at the rear body supports by the rear shock mounts...a good chance that the thick rubber washers are gone,and will tilt the rear quarter... and w ...

Amen to the “final fitting”. I have my hood to line up with the cowl( sits too high) and going to make the tool. My last “gap” project ( well on my 64). Tomorrow my wife is heading back to NY, to visi ...
