Rust / Body Work Question

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I have the dreaded rust-around-the-emblem on my trunk. Also down by the lip. The rust is local to the trunk; I've tried repairing this with body filler (that has fiber-glass, not just bondo).

I took it to the body shop, the guy said he wouldn't touch it because the repair would be unsuccessful. Sure enough despite my best efforts, the repair rotted through around the bondo during the winter. I have repaired cars with body filler before so I am familiar with the basics.

So, the trunk lid gets uglier and uglier, but the rest of the car is corrosion free.

Does anyone either have:

a) experience ordering / located a replacement trunk lid?

B) successfully patching this type of problem?

Thanks in advance,
