I think you are going to find that most everyone with the original decklid is going to have the decklid warped some. Mine is. In past posts it has been discussed that a way to fix it is to lay a towel down on top and then pile a bunch of shop manuals (or old encylopedias) on top of the towel and wait over the winter. I have tried this and it seemed to work some, but the warping seems to come back. So, I have learned to live with it as part of the uniqueness of the car. It will be interested to hear of other experiences on this. Casey
