You already know that the rust inside that boot lid is incurable.
But a trunk lid swap is easy and probably cheaper than paint anyway.
Don't remind me. I dunno what I'm gonna do about that.
Edit: and the other problem with getting a trunk lid from the wreckers is that I don't know what the condition of it will be. For all I know it could have the same problem. If yours had it and mine has it, it must be somewhat common.
