Welcome from NC. Great looking car brother. You must be pretty psyched.

Congrats!!! And welcome from PACKER nation. She is pretty and although it looks like you're in Bills(?) country, I will offer the friendly advice to get the trunk deck adjusted to keep any water from getting in (and ensure none has already).
Enjoy!!
I would like that advice to get the trunk to line up better please

Going back and looking at your pic it almost looks like its down to the striker but not latched. Without putting my eyeballs on it and assuming the hinges are mounted correctly, you can try this as a starting point and hopefully an adjustment down a tad gets you squared away. How's the tranny issue coming along?

Don't know yet about the tranny can't find a shop to look at it and plus the motor dies out on me. Going to a shop this morning and talk with them without the car then if they will look at it I will have it towed over.

🤦‍♂️ Hang in there. I have to think there is a go-to guy/gal shop near you.
