Small window Tailgate question

Post by 58splitty » Tue Sep 17, 2019 1:42 pm

I’m onto the rear of the car now and looking at the tailgate fitting. When looking at the belt running around the body my tailgate sits about 2mm higher than the body and doesn’t quite line up. So... should there be a spacer between the hinge and the body?
