Patience.....you may have to adjust the length of the rod going to the catch....AND be sure the "striker" is not worn out. My catch/striker was worn so my friend welded a little to it and then I filed it down smooth. Got a good tight fit..........plus, some of the catches may have a bigger than needed hole where you can adjust it.

......and be sure your weather stripping i on correctly....all this is info per my 52 panel I did.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
