Took a while, but finally got the seibon CSL trunk installed. I was going to get it painted and installed by a shop, but my friend offered to paint it for me. I usually like doing everything to the car on my own (instead of giving it in to a shop), so I agreed.

I purchased the trunk from a member on this forum. The lip of the trunk had a small crack going along the trunk. So first thing we did, is fix that up with some resin.

Sanded it down and got it ready for paint.

Next, we primed the trunk. I decided to paint the whole thing and not leave any carbon fiber exposed. Cleaner look in my opinion.

Got the stock trunk off the car.

Decided to paint the chrome grilles and fog light covers. (fog light covers did not fit well, so did not install)
