what I did with my corolla (had a wing on it then changed my mind about it) was I used teckweld on the inside of the trunk and outside, then sanded it flush with the trunk, then used flowing putty and sanded that, then primed the whole thing...I had left the whole trunk primed black and sold it that way...another thing u can use is DumDum (u don't sand this tho, its kinda like play-doh)
yeah I would suggest welding either or patch or just a tack depending on how big the holes are. then body work, prime, paint.
Do not prime the whole trunk, keep your body work area and primer to a minimum so you will be able to blend the paint within the panel and not have to worry about blending adjacent panels or your color not matching.
If you cannot use a welder, tap the holes in a little bit to create a small dent. scuff the area thoroughly with 24 or 40 grit paper. then use short strand fiberglass filler, then do your body work. prime and paint.
I was wondering how I would convert the back lights on the cobalt. In my case I did install an LED light but they hyperflash. I tried a Load Resistor but occasionally the back turn lights would not blink. I have not replaced the main break lights in the back just the turn signal lights.
Coming from a two-year placement in Germany in the Army, I looked closely at the Chevrolet Cobalts Americans owned, and the native European Opel Astra which I personally owned. Close comparison between the Astra "G" (98-04) and the Cobalt show striking similarities in body. All lines and designs...
Hi guys, I have an 06 and older stereo and it sucks, no aux, usb, and the buttons dont have paint on them anymore, im thinking of putting in a double DIN pioneer to match my factory sound system, anyone know if you need a bezel for the radio or is it just a perfect fit? thanks,
