if it's a new quarter than that's not out of the question for it to give you a bigger gap. If I were you I'd line it up first to the your upper rear body panel and just by doing that with your hinges not pushed to one side or the other it will probably show you where the problem quarter is, if it's not obvious to you now. Can also measure to find out. In any case, line it up to your upper rear body panel and to the good quarter 3/16" all around. Then you can now use your rear decklid as a guide to tell you how far you need to push in the gap to reweld. You do this by running a slice on top of the quarter a tad away from the corner, close sections up to 3/16" and tack it shut. done!
