Replacement Notes

You'll need a rivet gun...if you don't have one, get a cheap one from walmart or any hardware store. These 4 screws are important that you must set fully up or else the trunk WILL NOT CLOSE. There are 2 metal clips to transfer to the new cover , to remove, drill out the old rivets and install new...very easy, this replacement after paint job only took about an hour. you must remove the inner carpeting, sides, and its just a few clips and screws...if you break a clip, go to autozone and get a pack for 3 bucks..good luck!

I'm definitely not an auto body person... i am mike paget jack of all trades master o' none!
