Words cannot describe the level of happiness I reached after I returned home today to find my solution for this problem;
The scary part is that the above photo is a good one, it doesn’t even begin to visually relay just how destroyed that boot-lid is, if rust wasn’t the only problem, the previous owner hacking into the skeleton like a flailing zombie would have proved more than difficult enough to remedy.
Thankfully though with big, big ups to the wonderful Ewan of hayatonka.com, I placed an order for and subsequently received this replacement;
HUGE thanks to Ewan, again (and again and again) and massive respect to restored.jp for providing such a fantastic product. I’m quite sure my mind is made up to wait for the cash to get another few things before I send the car in to get sorted. No point fixing steel to then rust again at a later date when there’s FRP of this fit and quality about.
