Removal of trunk and hatch. **UPDATED** now installed!!

Well guys/girls this is my little project at the moment. I have just recieved my carbon fiber trunk/hatch and now I need to remove the hatch and all the components including rear brake light, wiper motor and blade, and many other little parts.

Now if someone can please help me out by telling me how to remove the hatch and trunk the correct way. A person with a helms manual can help me out the most, so if someone can please email me those certain pages will greatly help me out.

Either post those pages here or email them to me. Thanks in advance.

My email is: [email protected]
Thanks guys.

I will take pictures of the hatch in the morning. I got it from VIS, and by the looks of it, the trunk looks very good. I will have it installed hopefully by this weekend for a car show. But I will take pictures of it tonight,.

And as of now I an the only one in Arizona with the Cf trunk, and jdm rims :)hehe..

Well I will post pictures of the hatch tomorrow.

A new window? Aren't all windows the same weight? I will call VIS today and talk to them a bit more and ask about that.

There is a company that makes lightweight RSX windows for racing applications. I can't, for the life of me, remember the name of the company, I've seen ads is Honda Tuning and Import Tuner. I think the windows are made of Lexan or some other synthetic material. I'll look around for the vendor.

EDIT: Found it... the company is FAL. Here is a post I found about it. If you search there a bucnh of others.

Thanks.

And yes it has little dents where you can drill holes for the "A" emblem on the rear trunk, and it also has a hole cut out for the third brake light as well.

Ok guys, now back to the topic, LOL. Does anyone have the manual that can scan and send me the pages regarding the removal of the trunk/hatch?
