    Rear bumpers are up too, for about £120 - although I gather the colour-match isn't perfect?

    I'd rather my door waistbands were available :shoot2::D

    I got one of the rear bumpers. £100 can't go wrong, but surely a factory painted Brooklands green item will be the right colour? Is it just that the cars themselves have aged to a different hue?

    I got one of the handles too, mad not to at that price. My four retaining torx screws are rusted to the point where I'm sure they won't come undone, the star shape in the middle of them is barely recognisable. Any tips how to get them out? Can you get to them from inside the tailgate?

    The thing is most cars are various shades of green anyway, so does it really matter!

    I head realy bad time trying to remove my old handle, and I will not go into details but I used torx and pliers and a lot of swearing...

    However when I managed to take it off in one piece, although I sometimes wondered... i DID NOT USE REGULAR BOLTS ANY MORE. I used STAINLESS bolts for this, and today I can do with them whatever I please.

    I tend to replace bolts which can rust with stainless ones. Even my exhaust is stainless completely...

    Too much for me at this moment. I have asortment of stainless bolts and compare and use. I would need to remove one to be sure.

    This is the screw that holds tailgate handle to the tailgate CYP105840. It is not M6 bolt, but sheet metal screw. I used stainless steel one of the similar shape which is used for metal, plastic and wood fastening. As I said, I have assortment of stainless bolts and screws and just use what I need. The best I can at this moment.
