Got my new vert trunk handle in the mail yesterday

Installed it today. Did not use the top part in the picture. Used the old one so my cheap a$$ would not have to pay for paint.
The reason I replaced it was because where the screws connect it was broken in 2 places so when you go to pop the trunk its like the handle wanted to come off. It was like that when i bought the car.

It took me about 2 hours. It was pretty straight forward. It would have been easier if I got the new piece painted. Removing the old glue from the original piece I reused took the longest. Then getting my led plate lights to line up with the contats was a PITA.
I took a some pics. Should I write up a DIY?
