Refinish Trunk and Hood Levers


Recommended Posts

I got tired of the peeling finish that was wearing off the levers for opening the trunk and hood. I tried sanding it down and it still didn't look right. I took it apart and filled the scratches and indentations and primed them for paint. Matte black is the plan. e8d5bce080650db263b31115de13deb5.jpg

Not much accomplished today as I ended up having to do an alternator on my wife's car after nearly getting stranded this morning.

Remanded and primed and painted.

Also I had the seat out to deal with a power issue. So I repainted the floor as it looked like the seats had been in and out a number of times carelessly.

Also looming all of the wires, but ran out of loom. Back to the store tomorrow.

Okay, here is the finished product. Not sure if I'm fully satisfied. I might try painting the entire unit on not just the levers.

It does look better than it did, but I really don't like the rubber coating on everything in this car as it marks up very easily.

As you can see the seat is back in and now functional. It's missing the trim. Will order it. Also found a bolt stuck in the seat rail which was stopping the seat from moving properly. And I made about 8 bucks in change falling out of the seat.
