Any suggestions for removing the chrome "Jaguar" assembly that contains the license plate lamp assemblies from the Boot? The manual says to remove the 6 bolts and "wiggle" it off of the boot. I managed to loosen all 6 bolts, they appear to be captive and therefore not fully removable, but the assembly appears to hang up between the lock cylinder and the rearmost sheet metal of the Boot.
Can anyone recommend a reliable bodyshop within 30 miles of Stafford who would be able to carry out welding and fettling at the base of the windscreen of my facelift 4-litre coupe and, additionally, respray the whole car. A previous attempt at partial respray encountered difficulties when there was a reaction between the new paint and the previous paint so the respray may necessitate going down to bare metal. All suggestions gratefully received.
