after thinking about it further, I have a feeling we did change my trunk lid 20 years ago when the fenders were replaced. Back in about '76 I had interrupted someone stealing my wire wheel covers and they took off but cam back and paid me back by wrenching on my bike rack, twisting my bumper and deforming the back edge of the trunk lid. I think the guy doing my bodywork suggested putting a new one on rather than fixing the bent one and I think I agreed (more regrets). If true, then the replacement lid may be the problem rather than the replacement fenders. Is there a way to tell if the trunk lid is a repo vs the original? If it is repo, then I want to check the curvature on a new repo and see if it is a better alignment and if it is, maybe II'll just go for a new one. I'm looking for an original one locally but haven't found one yet. If I go repo, is Dynacorn my best bet or should I be looking at another manufacturer?
