    Firebird cavity cover not fitting now

    Thought I'd ask you guys if you have any solutions. I rewired my Tokai Firebird. After I was done I tried to screw down the cavity cover and the jack is sitting too high for the cover to sit down in the route all the way. It wasn't like that with the original wiring in it. I don't have the old...
