    Default Rear boot strip

    Not sure if this is the correct place for this but here goes....
    How easy is it to remove/refit the chrome strip on the tailgate? I'm thinking about maybe getting mine carbon fibre wrapped but want to know how easy it is to remove.

    Cheers

    Stephen

    More than that on mine - one bolt each side accessible and another couple either side of the lock behind the interior tailgate trim I think.

    4 bolts and 4 clips

    Dont worry of you snap the clips, you really dont need them!

    get to the bolts by pulling back boot lid lining
