novafreek6872 Checked it today, if I was to raise the middle, the sides would sit up higher than the quarters, so it looks like I'll just have to live with it. Its not that bad, but perfection is always the goal on these things...

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?

it's a long one but it gives you a good general idea about panel alignment.
