Thanks all. Well I took the spoiler off and hit it with 1000, 2000, 3000 grit and then buffed. Still not quite the as good as a professional, experience takes time.

Started the rear EDM fog light, oh the joys of what body shops get a way with.....






I know there should be a cutout marking somewhere, but seems mine doesn't have one...

You are correct. And now I contemplate cutting a hole in my rear bumper for some accessory I don't really need....

What do ya'll think??

Make yourself a template and then cut from there. I guessed with my positioning but it turned out really well. My first rear fog I didn't have to cut the crash bar but I did have to with the second one (someone bumped me at a light and broke the first one). I use mine all the time in heavy rain and the rare morning fog.

Never amazes me anymore the shortcuts shops take underneath the skin of her. Slapping the body fill on with a spoon in places, to need to even shave it down. From body shops to mechanics there are a lot who take short cuts. It's hard to find a good shop these days........

Now, if I could just improve my paint skills.....

By gee gosh. I may be starting to get the hang of this body work thing. Put a lot more effort and time into this job than the spoiler. After looking at this job compared to the spoiler, I'm going to repaint the spoiler





The old seal is full of rust... ug.........


and comparing this to the last job the body shops did, one starts to see that if you had enough time and the right tools, all it takes is time.

...the improper tape placement by one shop




i'll get a new trunk seal i think.

Well it's about time. Why I cannot order these online in Canada baffles me still.
