Got Tailgate difficulties

Post by Moggyminor » Sun Sep 01, 2019 7:10 am

Hi everyone,
Restoring my 79 Gt, new floors, boot floor, pedal box rot etc etc, just repainted and now Re assembling, really struggling with the tailgate, catches the roof gutter on the way down can’t even shut it, don’t remember there being any spacers/ shims anywhere, take it left hinge is mounted on the left standing at the back of the car? Does anyone know where to put shims to make it clear the roof channel, gettwell wound up!! Any help advice would be massively appreciated. Chris

Hi, just registered with this forum.

Yes there are spacers/shims under the hinge but it seems they are either unavailable or out of stock.

If you look on ... -gt.html#9 this page item 9 is what I think you need.

Could try a few other spares sites to see if they have some for sale.
