ElMedioGringo,

I recently completed this task on my 64. You are correct in the fact that the repro ones really do not fit well. I ended up cutting the upper lip off the repro ones, fabricating a new lip and trimming off a good 1" out of the vertical portion. Essentially I custom made the piece to fit exactly were it needed to go so the quarter panel was in the right spot and then matched the filler piece to the trunk. I hope this helps, regrettably I did not take any pictures of this process...
