Hi guys, me again,

Just stripped the rear boot as it was looking a bit of a mess, faded paint, badges stuck on badly, spoiler hiding rust, etc...

Well, I would like to remove the reflector as it looks like dirt is trapped behind it and god only knows what else, however the bolts are rusted or just spinning.  I did a bit of googling and it sounds like they are imposable to find so I'm now unsure if I should just leave it alone or persist removing it by cutting the bolts off. Has anyone found you can cut the bolts off and replace them after it's removed.

Oh, one other thing, I measured the badges as 50mm and 45mm above the reflector to the bottom edge of the badges, and about 50mm to the outside edge, not being sure it they should be level and the exact height I could really do with someone with an unmolested model to put me straight.
