Install of new Trunk lid

edited August 2013 in Tech
Ok so I have a new trunk lid for my CSS. I need to get some pics so you guys see what I am referring to, but just have a question. So my stock lid had bolts sticking out of the lid (welded in). My new CF trunk lid just has holes and what looks like wood so bolts/screws will grip. Is that common for these aftermarket parts? I just don't want to F this expensive ass lid up.

  • not sure, but i do know the CF hood i had, had metal threaded inserts for the hinges
  • ya there is not metal thread for it...ugh.

    Well I have new bolts and washers. I even have to cut the holes for the reverse lights, 3rd brake light and latch. kind of a B.
  • sounds like a quality piece :roll:

    it was from a big vendor, but was more of a unique piece. I was in on the pre-order so no one had any idea. Yeah...kinda sucky.

    I got the bolts and stuff so I'll throw it in tonight maybe. Got a freaking cold so I'm like half high half tired half zombie ;)

  • the bitch is on!!! Not fully tightened, but it is all good to go. what a B! Looks good though :)
  • Pics or it isn't on!!! lol
  • hahaha. OK ok... let me see here...
  • trunk isn't fully bolted in tight. Loose for adjustment/alignment etc. But fit is okay. I measured and used templates to drill the holes for the lights and latch...what a pita. But done!

  • ohhh i love Carbon!!
  • mmmmm I know. CF is sexy time. Well I adjusted it. Fits pretty well but not perfect. I drove to the cities for my airport run and no water was in the trunk...so thats good.
  • Very nice looking! Are you planning to do a CF hood?
  • Yeah. I'd like to do a CF hood w/ vents and aero pins. Not sure if I'll paint the parts. I'd like to paint it white with a SS in CF on the trunk lid. But that requires money...and with a house...it steals it all ;)

    This is the race shop owners ion. CF hood w/ vents. Something like that, but I may have to fence off my radiator etc.
