Well.. Tired to see that chrome rust in my trunk opener y decided to replace it! It looks like the clear coat of the logo is starting to peel off at the bottom.
Got another one with a different design the logo is not flat like the original, because is a 08 I guess but whatttt! Surprise!😱... Rust! At the bottom of the opening, I guess is because of the water sitting there. I know! I park my car outside all time year around .. Rain snow heat .. Storms..... But I take care of it with a weekly bath and 2 months wax.
Ok so I decided to get rid of the rust, remove it ant paint it.. So first thing I did was to use my dremel
then I use some rust remover , clean it , then I used rust oleum reformer..
A light sanding with fine grid sand paper , then duplicolor primer...and touch up paint.. Couldn't find the right color but you will not see it anyway, a couples coats then clear and that's it! In my case I had to go a little more at the edge so I had to use my touch up VW paint set😁
Let it dry and put the new opener
But just in case I put some clear silicon in all the bottom and like 1/2 inch hight in the back like building some pitch so water runs straight down and That is all folks!
Here is the finished product..
Thanks to Mimi❤ for all the encourage to get this done!
