Rear decklid tip
I'm VERY happy to have FINALLY figured this out. A while ago I read something Martin wrote about decklid frames touching the outer skin and messing with how it rests. He then said it needed to be separated if it posed a problem. The thing was, I realized in most cases this caused little high spots that can easily be spooned down flat and that's the end of that, so I thought I had it all figured out but there's been an ongoing problem that I never figured out. It was the areas around the hinges. So what happens is when you open the rear decklid it opens pretty violently and when the hinges stop it the decklid wants to keep going in the direction of opening it but the hinge suddenly stops that. What happens is the frame area around the hinge will pull down the skin due to this. I can't count how many times I've had troubles with decklids because of this. You literally think you're going crazy cause if you mud this area it will just COME BACK after opening it a few times and since a decklid is big and your focuses are on the whole decklid you overlook the fact that it's not your work or that you didn't fill it enough, it's moving on you! So the fix is, if you fix it and it comes back THEN you slice the adhesive that bonds the two together and wedge in a putty knife to separate the panels. Works like a charm and it will immediately sort of fix it self and raise by itself when separated. Just thought I'd share that cause it's something that can very easily be overlooked and I've never heard anyone address the issue around the hinge so thought I'd share.
