Ive been throwing around this idea about making the slots longer, but I didnt know for sure if it would help. The striker is up as far as it will go.

What do you think?
so obviously you have no more movement. How does it line up at the rear? Does it look like it needs to go back? Is the height right with the rear body panel behind your rear windshield?
