    Hey guys I'm working on the trunk lid and Dutchman panel on my 68 Charger and I'm a little stuck. I replaced the quarter panels and I removed the original Dutchman to make the quarter replacement easier and I also fixed a couple of holes in the rear window channel on the Dutchman. I then reinstalled the Dutchman and now I'm working on fitting the trunk lid (AMD). Now I know that the Dutchman has a slight crown from side to side that obviously follows the deck lid but I'm not sure if there is supposed to be a crown going front to back of the panel. When I lay a straight edge up the center of the trunk lid and over the Dutchman panel, the transition between the panels is fairly flat but about halfway through the Dutchman it rolls slightly toward the window channel. I don't remember it doing this before but I never payed that much attention to that area. Is this normal or should it be totally flat all the way up to the window? Thanks!
