Re: Battery light on!! What’s the issue?

For the alternator, look for reputable places to rebuild. Far cheaper and you avoid the pitfalls people have with the Bosch units. Alternatively (heh. heh.) look for a new Valeo unit.

Re: Streamline CSL Trunklid

Agreed - it would be nice if Brandon provides us with some more detailed pictures (paint defects and measurements of the trunklid) given the claims against your reputation.

Pictures are below. The lighting wasn't the best and the wheels are 12 years old so much of what you might see as flakes could be dirt, etc.
