In case this helps...

There are two 65-66 decklids on the market currently, the one from Golden Legion, and the newer-tooling/thicker one from Musclecar GT (which I'm fairly certain where Dynacorn buys theirs from).

We carry both.

I went back with a measuring tape, and the MGT decklid came in at 52 5/16" wide (measuring in the same place as the OP).

The GL decklid came in at a gnat's hair over 52 3/8".

I measured my 1,300 original mile original-paint coupe in the showroom, and it came in at just-over 52 3/8", you could attribute the difference between it and the GL decklid to paint thickness.

And if the OP has a couple of repaints on his original lid, that could explain the extra few gnat hairs on his tape.

But it does appear that the MGT lid is a touch narrow..

What I was not impressed with is the care with which the outer skin was applied to the inner frame on the MGT lid, or the craftsmanship on the tail-end of the lid. Where the body creases are, it's not terribly crisp, and not terribly straight. The body-crease seems to meander a bit. And lots of grinding work under the primer on the RH side.

For the extra dough, you might get O.E. thickness and heft, but the lighter GL lid has the better side to side dimension, and better/crisper/truer stamping of the outer skin, and better/cleaner installation of the outer skin.

Of course, installing each of them is the REAL litmus test, and I don't have an available coupe to play with. I can't play with that virgin low-mile unit in the showroom obviously..

To the OP, I'd be willing to slide you a killer deal in return for your test-install findings on the GL lid, if you're so inclined. PM me if interested.

Water drains...... And I thought I'd seen it all....

Sorry to hear about your poor customer support experience, seems to be a number a posts recently on CJPP service. I actually switched to CJPP a few years back, even though Mustangs Unlimited is close to me. A few poor experiences with the counter folks at MU. A few guys there are very good, but it only takes a few instances to get turned off.

So far, CJPP has been good to me, shipping has been fast and backorders filled within days, with the exception of one, which they credited me for pretty quickly once notified the parts would not be replenished in the near term. I am a bit concerned that they recently set a threshold for free shipping (and noticed MU is now free on all orders) and discounts donít seem a often or as much (but I could be incorrect).

Hope this gets corrected for you!

What you received could have been somebody's return, they simply restock and ship it out to the next guy.

I have been happy with the purchases I have made from CJPP in the past, but posts like this make me think I am going to NPD for sheet metal in the future.

If you clean the seam sealer in the circled area, you may find a cut for condensation that accumulates on the inside of the lid to flow down and drain. Usually the excessive sealant used during production of the lid covers them. I cleaned the seam sealer and opened the cuts on the corners on my 69 and 70 coupes (with original trunk lids) before paint.

Okay, so there are drainage holes. Not sure if itís the same for 65, but that is good to know anyway. Thanks for pitching in!. However, the tears in the metal on my trunk lid repop are clearly not well done, nor do I think they are intentional. If they ARE supposed to be there, they were done terribly and not in the same spot as the originals...

Mine are small shear cuts under the expended areas, they are a lot cleaner than your repop trunk.

I took some pictures of the deck lid of my 65. It is the original and even has the jack instruction label still in there. I don't see any drain holes but there a lot of other slots and holes. Maybe some are drain holes. At least I didn't see any drain holes. My Deck Lid measures 52 9/16.

Sorry to hear about the support service, or lack of with CJPP, hope they get it straightened out for you. Glad you posted it though, I was about to pull the trigger on their 66 tail light panel and some other parts, will wait a bit now.

Ordered an original tooled panel from MU, but they don't have any in stock and don't know when they'll get them in, so I'm thinking that dynacorn is the next best part for fitment.

Keep us posted on the outcome.

Have yet to actually have a decent experience with CJ's. Have ordered multiple items over the years, most are on back order even though they don't say this on their website. Then it takes 5-7 business days to get the order. NPD or Summit is where I do a majority of my parts purchases, if I can't purchase the item locally.

Thanks for the pics of the original, this reinforces what we suspect! Thank you

The taillight panel I got from them was probably the best sheet metal part Iíve gotten from CJs, but itís a simple piece to make and each part could be different. If you can order from a different supplier, might as well in case you get a defective unit and donít want to engage in the brain damage that is CJ support

Theyíre parts are usually in stock for me, but Iíve noticed they take forever to ship out. Unfortunately, their support team has a poor reputation and I can see why after trying to sort this out

I have been there in person when visiting my dads place in PA

They have a fair collection of damaged stuff for sale on the showroom floor so they definitely take it back.

That damage on your lid is crazy, Never seen anything like that

I bought 2 doors from them, both looked like someone had tossed them from a moving train. After some back and forth and elevated blood pressure on my part they eventually replaced them, but it wasn't a delightful experience.
