thank you for the reassurance brother! I'm really set on getting this fixed by myself if possible! I think that either one hinge is out of position or somehow I've bent the rear deck lid a bit? It is very hard to tell, no distortion in metal underneath or in the paint itself although when I was inside the trunk itself I noticed it is finished in a darker slate/gun metal grey compared to the light smoke silver of the rest of the car... Since I'm the 3rd owner, could this car have been in a wreck? I got the papers from the Province and everything seemed to be in order? I'm still shocked I had enough strength to bend those hinges in the first place!!! If I cannot get anything more out of slightly adjusting the deck lid screws, could anyone ballpark how much loot I'd have to cough up for the fix?
ALL ADVICE HAS BEEN GREATLY APPRECIATED!
