Ive got a 2000 Eldo with a latch that has broken away from the trunk lid. The metal has actually broken away . There is no way to attach the latch to the lid . Has any one ever had this happen ? It appears that there isnt a whole lot of metal there in the first place to hold the latch . I always close the trunk gently but there are always those individuals that have to slam it down and you know that isnt good . Any ideas on how to fix this? I know it could be welded but I dont to ruin the paint. Thanks for any Ideas/experiences that you can offer.

JB Weld and some pieces of flat sheet metal?? Seriously. I don't remember what the area around the latch looks like, but it is worth a shot.
