Re: Installing the Rumble Seat Lid

Thank you Randy for your additional information. I just checked, and they did leave out the last screw. Also, when they rebuilt that floor panel, they did square up that corner. Fortunately, they...

Re: Installing the Rumble Seat Lid

Hello Steve! OK! I found the stops that you mentioned, and now know where the pieces that I have go. It becomes more difficult when holes get filled in with body filler. Thanks all of you for...
