Get a pic of the rear of your car up and one of us will have a go at photoshopping it for you so you can see.

u from ek?? lol thats where am from, whats ur name??

il had my 5 door tailgate semi-smoothed (ie wiper and badge off, number plate left where it was) and it looked good

you need to decide how you want to go about doing it.

ie i went for semi smooth because its less hassle than having to relocate the number plate, and sort out a new number plate light (mot requirement)

if its purely for looks, then a full smooth is definitely the way to go

if you want to keep your rear wiper, then again thats upto you

Best way is to do a few photoshops and see which one you prefer. Saves spending all the cash then deciding you don't like it.

Mine is fully smoothed, but be warned to smooth a 5 door boot is 10x harder than a 3 door. As the 5 door boot is more egg shaped, you have to weld the sheet metal then build it up with filler.

u got anything to back this claim up??? :eek:

the 5 door boot has less of a curve on it, so in effect is actually easier, although there isnt much of a difference at all!!!!!
