    Todays little mod & now ready for PVS

    Todays little mod was only suposed to take 10 mins. Yeah famous last words LOL









    Finally removed the tailgate lock, Started this last year when i fitted my boot solenoid, Well that last long.

    Cut a long story short, never finished the job off, wires hanging down, bring new wheels back from work after i had painted them and it ripped the wires out.

    So PVS only a week away i decided to repair the fault and finish off what i started.

    Shes now pretty much how i want her to look and just a few minor tidy up jobs and thats it.

    Also ready for PVS now other than a good wash on saturday morning before i leave.

    very nice, I did the same with a nexia solenoid, good thing about coupes is they have a single stage lock not a double like the hatchs!

    I bought a boot solenoid kit from LMF last year but the solenoid you get in that kit was a bit of pig to mount in the coupe boot lid so i had another lying around that i used.

    It looks like a motor from central locking kit TBH.

    My mate has just delocked his coupe boot lid and he used central locking motor thats already in the boot lid and just rewired it.

    Hope this helps

    looks great, but i just cant help thinking if your going for the smooth look on the back, why do you have the badges on there still, not a fan personally of them.

    Looks really good, small mod but makes a massive difference to the rear.
