For sure a bit of a oversight on my part. Luckily it is a easy adjustment. Everything else was on it. Doors fenders, valance, etc. just never put the trunk lid on

Most of us forget to check every single detail, I forgot to check the alignment where the trunk meets the quarter panel extension and am out on one side so may have to repair this another time but will live with it for now

I found it to be a great help prior to paint was to drill some small holes in the trunk/hood hinges once alignment was correct
Didn't bother with the doors but some do 

Made it really easy when refitting the panels and less paint chips

It’s been a bit of a lull time and money just isn’t cooperating as usual. I did manage to get a great deal on a new complete axle set up I wanted though. Rear axle, springs, brakes, Weather stripping, light gaskets, headliner window tint then window installation to come in the next week or so [Image: 405ad5684ee97efa993f301a7ed9d8e8.jpg]

I couldn’t resist. I sold my 28 spline for $250. Which needed seals, bearings, brakes. So the way I look at it I got it for next to nothing.

You are moving along nicely for sure. Just keep slugging away at it and the end will show up soon.
I think you might also be missing a couple brackets inside the trunk floor. There are two rubber pads that the wire form feet on the fold down rest in. Those rubber pads slide into two butterfly brackets welded in the target emboss on the floor. When there are no holes to align parts Ford put a bead to give the worker some way to get them in the ball park. If you have the trap door in you can use it when putting them in. Maybe Don will have a pair of them if the PO did not cut the old ones out of the original floor. There are a couple brackets on the bottom also for locating the gas tank you might be missing. Her are a couple pics of mine.[Image: DSC-0951.jpg]

Thanks. Yes I am definitely missing the pieces inside the truck. The trunk was pretty much gone on My parts car so they were no longer in the car. Thanks again.
