Thanks. I am not at all sure why you'd suggest removing the drop rails?
I don't have a "stock" place to relocate the original hinge pin-it's more or less a welded washer system. I am having a lot of issues realigning the trunk lid into the slightly off space created by the original re-assembler of my coupe.
The idea was to use something like 35-36 hinges mounted to the top of the deck lid, but I am looking for other options.
