CSL trunk

Looks great....I also noticed that the gaps look a little larger, but even.....any leaking when you wash the car?
A lot of CSL trunks if not most, eliminate the 3rd brake light, nice that yours incorporates it.....

you're getting confused with the coupe trunk, all convertible csl trunks incorporate the 3rd brake light!

jordan you should screw those bump stops in more on your trunk, looks like that is not letting your trunk sit down all the way. i test fit mine without them and the fitment is perfect!

ill have better gap/fitment pictures of mine once painted but here was after about an hour of tinkering. id say im 90% pleased with the outcome. most fitment issues with the trunk that can be fixed with a little bit of tweaking.

in terms of jordan's trunk it just needs to go down a little bit so the bottom of the lights line up, other than that i say his fits well

also, i like how jordan's 3rd brake light fits compared to most. his is flush with the trunk while mine and many others are sunken in.
