    Plastic filler?

    is this sort of stuff available? Seeing as ive had the rear badge holes welded
    over on my Coupe (due to a de badging nightmare!) ive though about smoothing
    the boot handle off!

    This is how it looks at the moment




    And this is my idea

    im not 100% but i think the best bet would be to fibrefill were you want to fill and smooth it to match the rest of it then spray over

    of course it's available.... i only just recently did it myself infact. i used a flexible "bumper" filler that halfords sell, along with some aluminium mesh skiaflexed over the hole to make sure it had plenty of grip.

    fibreglass is another alternative.

    bear in mind of course, that you will need to setup a solenoid in the boot as you will be loosing your only means of opening it!

    Me and my mates were out riding a good few years back and one of them wondered why there were buttons under the wingmirrors on this TVR, so he pressed it, the window wound down and the door popped open, he was thinking 'what the ****? could you make it any easier to steal?'

    they only work if the car is unlocked....


    that's like saying "why put handles on a car door.... could you make it any easier to steal?"

    can anyone recommended a good solenoid for the job? Also any idea how much the handles are froma VXL stealer? Although it may be worth going to a scrappy!

    i can give you a link to a solenoid that works perfectly old chap - in fact let me just check because i think lmf started selling them

    edit - http://www.lmfvauxhall.com/prodCatal...x=&deptIndex=0


    only works for us coupe chappies' boots because of the way our lock mechanism works it would seem (based on another thread... long story).
