There are lots of ways to get perfect gaps with metal work, my concerns is that the poster could start doing these things when in actually it requires something else entirely like simply moving the lid forward or back. We really need photos to know what to tell him.

There are often very simple methods to solve problems, I just hate for him to jump into cutting and welding when it could be something much simpler. I am just guessing of course it may very well need a LOT of serious surgery, but without photos we are only guessing at what THIS car needs.

Something goofy like the lid they fitted the quarters with was the original and now the poster is putting on a new repro, we don't have enough info.
