"so does anyone have a really cherry rear deck lid. Paint doesn't matter, I just dont want Bondo, or dents . . . "

Good luck finding a "Cherry" deck lid. Based on my limited experience and others experiences.... I would rather have some holes or dents in a deck lid than what I usually find....

Usually I find slight waves or deformations in the lid... many not detectable until you get a nice shiny coat of something on them... usually caused by years of less than careful closing of the lid.

These problems on front and rear lids seem more common than dents or holes but much harder to fix... I used finishing Bondo and lots of sanding to get these out of my lids.

I have taken what I thought was a perfect lid and later found lots of shallow deformations.... Others have had similar experiences.... Give me the dents and holes I can see instead any day. YMMV
