Re: Dealing with pitted body panels?

Re: Fit problem with reskined rumble lid

You have to cut the skin. The flange is attached to the inner structure as you said it was welded into place. So the flange will be attached inside. Then you grind the edge of the skin to get your...

Re: Sport Coupe Adjustable Seat

Yes the Cabriolet is the same as the coupe. You way want to remove the seat frame to get into the seat tracks so you can clean them and lub them properly. Sometimes the long ways, the short way.
