Ultimately, Aguayo had to position a jack at the rear of the floor, raising it enough to twist all the components just right so everything lined up. Villarroel quickly jammed in some sheetmetal screws to hold it all together. Again, it helps to think of the whole car as a three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle. To get the horizontal trunk filler panel to line up with the quarters correctly, they had to twist up the floor in a counterclockwise direction. The best approach is to make the whole car fit together as a unit, not to force a single panel to fit its immediate neighbor. This also reinforces why it's best to screw together the car-you need to keep everything flexible while fitting all the panels.
