Thumbs up Thumbs up for Streamline Autosport (CSL replica boot lid)

Just wanted to say a big thanks to Streamline autosport for the replica CSL boot lid, was originally going to go down the genuine route but once I factored in paint cost I ended up purchasing it supplied & painted from the guys and this actually comes in a fair bit lighter than the stock unit so much so I only needed to run one boot strut!

Thanks again guys!

Think the Yanks can't fit them properly etc as I have only seen one person giving out about fitment but the oe boot lid takes a bit of fiddling etc to get right also

I had heard of this before I bought it, it did take around an hour of tweaking to get it right and I'm not a body shop trained person so I imagine some one who knew what they were doing could have it done in a fraction of the time, I needed to make a small adjustment to the lock mounting with the dremmel but for the cost including the paint I'm very pleased with it

Even the original CSL lid is not a straight bolt on, the main sway for me was the colour match without even blending, looks as good as the original paint

It was just under 500.00 all in supplied, painted & posted but there prices have increased from what I've seen as they have now revised the mould for an even better fit, more than happy with mine though
