IMO weldin would have been a far better option. Especially with boot, as its repeated slammed etc. But then again, it shudnt be too much of a prob coz it looks like u know what ur doin

i never use my boot, there is no room in it anyway lol. so for the solenoid, is it just a central locking motor which pulls the boot lock to open then?

how can ye half do it by fibreglassing it...? even if u weld metal there u shud still add p40.

p40 stick to metal better than p38, and p38 sticks to p40 better than it sticks to metal.
