    QuestionRemoving rear panel on trunk

    Im looking to remove the rear trunk panel (piece between rear lights that has the badge and catera nameplate on it) on a 2000 catera so i can do some body filling and painting... im re-badging the car to an omega... im assuming this should be pretty easy, just remove trunk liner and unscrew... if there are any tricks to it please let me know, im not going to start the project for a little while... no time! thanks

    Is it just that easy? Remove liner and unscrew? I'm looking to resurface and repaint next week. The clear coat is peeling off from the top down.

    Yes, just remove the liner but make sure you don't break any of that plastic screws that hold the liner. Once you are through with the liner, there are few bolts and then the two bulbs.
