Hello everybody. Quick question concerning paint damage from the trunk trim(large) on my '65 Chevy II. There is a line where bottom edge of trim sits against the trunk lid. I've sanded it out, and refinished the whole lid, but I know the line is going to be back. Has anyone else had this problem, and what did you do to solve it? I'm thinking of making a "gasket" for it. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Paul

Thanks Batman. I never thought of that. I cant do pictures, as I cant get photobucket to work.. I've been through the process as described on here, and can't get it to work.

From the factory they had strips of the same body caulk that they used between the front fender lip & inner fender panel mount. It was used on the backside of the diecast prior to installing. That should be enough to keep it from cutting into the paint.
