pics of '72 chevelle trunk?

Hi there, I'm in the process of rebuilding the trunk of my Chevelle and have run into a confusing issue.




You can see the trunk pan doesn't reach to the rear panel, but I don't think I'm missing anything?

Also you can see below the pan I bought doesn't reach the edges of the trunk, but I can't find those edge pieces listed anywhere?



Can someone please post some pics of their trunk so I can see how it goes together?

I'am working on a 68 gto that uses the same trunk floor. The owner odered two floors because the frist one was short on both sides. The second one which was sold as a full trunk floor was also short just as your is. I'am going to have to build the sides of the floor. I can post a picture of the factory floor if you would like but you will need to do as I am and build the peice thats missing.I can also get a shot of the rear body panel and part of the floor at the rear that you are missing.

Yeah I kinda resigned to having to fab the side panels. I'm more concerned with figuring out why the bumper side of the pan doesn't meet the tail panel. Any pics you can post of the stock trunk would be helpful. I didn't realize a '72 Velle and a '68 GTO had the same trunk?
