Trunk Lid Bolts..
« on: February 14, 2011, 03:14:22 AM »
Question!
Was the trunk lid painted before or after fitting to the body?
..or more specifically..
Do the trunk lid's mounting bolts have body color on them?

The deck lid was installed and final-fitted in the Body Shop, prior to painting; the hinge-to-lid bolts will be body color.

John,
 So we should find primer under the hinges?

Nope - you'll find raw metal under the hinges; they were attached before the body arrived in the Paint Shop.
