Tom, It is spelled "Viola". Big Grin It's French! Go figure right, but then again so is the name "Camaro". Camaro means comrade or friend. But we knew that too, right? Wink

Dave.. all four hinges are GM old NOS. They are terrific.. But good question..

Yes the trunk is now higher so there would be even more room for the weatherstrip.. The GM stuff is the only way to go.. That Soff seal stuff is rediculouse to even consider if you think the trunk is going to close flush.. Even with the GM it takes a few months for the strip to settle down

Weave.. I'll be out of time soon on this project til fall but I will admit it has gone real good so far.. Remember of course I need to metal work the hell out of each panel, take the entire car apart and deal with the trunk floor, 1/4 panles , dash top and a few freaky areas under the back seat.. then the rotissary which will not fit in my garage.. so then its time to start sponging off my friends which always cost something, somehwere, somehow.. Fun Fun Big Grin

You're so right. That's when the real fun starts. When did you switch from the Silver Bullet to the Eastwoods (Pap's)? Check out the latest pics of the 37 on FB showing the rear deck gap.

No, the car is a rust free, no hit steel car. It's filler material the body guy was sloppy with trying to get all the panels arrow straight.

VI says Hi guys!!... Tom BTW I had the same issue with my NOS Header and the bottom bulge-I thought fixing it was worth it to get the gaps at the ends and the correct capture dimensions at the hood.

Holy Cow that is sweet. Your hood gaps look to be tighter than mine... which I like.. I don't understand that unless I have a skinny hood compared to yours.. I might just be looking at it for too long.. all my gaps are real good but each is on the bigger side of the allowed tolerances,, My blue car is tight as a drum but yours seems to be spot on and I don't know how at this point.. It may just be pictures.. Its gonna help when I get my finished Pacer out of storage next month to compare. Thanks Phil

Tell Vi.. Viola for me

The fact that you can't see the black like is a good thing
