Even supported on jackstands, the gas tank/tail support panel didn't line up as well as it should have. The guys at Recon have access to several real fastback and convertible bodies in their shop that they can use for measurements, and the support stuck out about 1/4 inch too far. This may not sound like much, but that would throw off the alignment of the taillight panel to the quarter-panels, decklid, and bumpers. Carmody used a ratcheting tow strap to squeeze the panel in while pulling up on the trunk floor at the same time. This combination of forces got the support panel to line up correctly.
