    Reason I ask is I've managed to find a new tailgate in good condition, mines covered in deep scratches from mountain biking. Comes with a spoiler and tinted glass so WIN! How do I remove the original boot?

    Thanks, Chris.

    Remove all looms up to the gaitors, then unbolt the hinges, lift of.

    you make it sound easy >.< swore I had a look earlier and couldn't see any bolts just covered by the black plastics, I assumes they're under them.

    Don't suppose anyone knows if the bump strips on the doors and rear quarter are removable? Would make things easier when I wrap my car.
