Remove the SL's boot lid ?

Anyone know how to dismantal the boot lid.

If you read my 'boot problem' post you will recall i drilled a couple of nasty holes in the boot lid !:eek:

I want to remove the fibreglass part and have it repaired.

The part where the number plate screws to is fiberglass, it is attached to the metal part of the boot lid - somehow ???

I have found and removed 4 small trox screws and cant find anymore - but its still VERY WELL ATTACHED

The inside of the boot has been stripped and i still cant find would its attached ?

Any ideas.

I thought you were going to grp the holes and let the number plate hide the evidence...?
What are you like with body solder?
As you have the lid off, you could tip it up, slide a metal piece behind the holes and build it up with solder which will make it waterproof..? (I assume the outer skin of the lid is steel and not alloy?)
Would you mind taking some measurements to where you ended up drilling the hole and posting them here, or at least keeping a note of them in case anyone else falls into the same trouble??
On the 129 forum we had stickys with lots of useful stuff which built up into quite a database of solutions. We should do the same here.
