A small diameter rat-tail file works well if you need to elongate the slots slightly.

So I did more adjusting on that trunk latch, finally got it adjusted correctly. Apparently, I wasn't loosening the screws up enough, so that was the problem why it wasn't adjusting. Glad I didn't have to elongate the holes. I'm amazed at how well it turned out compared to how bad it was before. It shuts so nicely and easily now, even better than my daily driver! You can just push down on it and it clicks closed.

So I need to know the correct stock wheel size. I'm planning on putting aftermarket wheels on my car soon, on the front I'm putting on the exact stock wheel size. The current tires that are mounted on my car are from the 70s, so it was in the days before tire manufacturers printed the tire size on them.
Can someone please go look at their car's tire dimensions for me? That's what I'm after here, the dimensions that are printed on the tire sidewall. Thanks.

What are you talking about? Even in the 50's there were tire sizes marked on the tire. Just not the way they are today.

What I meant was that it only gives a letter-number- 14 on the tire. Now they give you all the info size you need printed on it. I wasn't around in the 70s when tires were like that so I had no idea of how to convert it to todays tire sizing.
Thanks for the conversion chart.
