Hi Redvassilis. I don't know what width the gaps should be exactly,
but a good trick is to use a paint stir stick to measure them.

It's not important to have the gaps a certain width, but to have
them all uniform. Measure the trunk lid gaps, and use that measurement
as a guide for the rest of the panels.
