I removed the notchback clip, and the rear bumper today. I started around 12 p.m. and it only took about 2 hours to do.
The hardest part in the whole process was removing the gas cap door – it was stuck to the rear clip with adhesive.
Now with everything off, I can start cleaning. You can see a lot of dust in the pictures. I plan on taking off the rear bumper (metal bumper) and grinding/sanding it down, followed by a fresh coat of paint.
There are also a few other small areas that I would like to touch up before I put the fastback clip on.
