    I'm about to cinch up the tail panel to quarters/ trunk floor. I'd like to know the proper gap on the sides of trunk lid to quarter panel area. (And to deck filler) Thanks

    1/8 to 3/16 along the sides, the back gap will be set by the front corners to 1/4 fit. But test fit the trunk lid with the spring on it, and weather strip, it will change the fit slightly.
