    i was planning on useing a flush tailgate on my car as i was going down the whole bodykit root but since i got the prodrive kit its kind of changed.
    i tried the smooth boot but it didnt look right and had no were that the pressed plate looked good so thought id do the next best thing and just flush over the lock area and leave the numberplate were it is as im going for the euro look know.

    Cut it out......


    Or get it pathched and welded, considering you'll have to paint it anyway...
    ...do it once, do it properly.
