I'd definitely go with the Plasti-dip. Matte black emblems on a black car would look good.

Yesterday I ordered the SEL/Titanium trunk liner...



...to cover this up:



It should be here by the end of next week.

OEM trunk lid liner:

Yesterday I received the liner that I'd ordered.



I discovered that while the S and SE sedans are left with bare trunk lids the higher SEL and Titanium examples receive liners from the factory. I felt that the exposed trunk lid looked a little unfinished so I did some searching for part numbers and ordered the pieces. This week they (Well, most of them) arrived. Two bags of clips are on their way, as I only have one so far. For the time being my liner is held in with just the four, the rest will be put in as soon as possible.

Here is the shopping list, should you wish to retrofit this to your S/SE sedan:



1 x Trunk lid liner: CV6Z-5446404-AA
3 x Fasteners: W703915-S300
(4 clips per bag)

Ultimately you should have one trunk lid liner (That part's kind of obvious) and 12 fasteners. A few will be left over.




This is the naked trunk lid, soon to be....clothed?



Putting the liner in couldn't be any easier. The hardest part of the whole process is feeding the trunk release handle through the slot, unless of course you want to lock someone in, in which case you should leave it hidden.



You'll notice the holes for the fasteners around the outer edge. Screw them in and you're done. Piece of cake.





The final picture for tonight is a full view of the partially debadged trunk. I'm thinking the 'SE' badge might look better in black.

My 01 base LX sedan came with a trunk liner. Definitely makes it look more finished.
Debadge looks good. I'd remove the SE as well if it was my car but that's your call.

It was definitely worth the money in my opinion, I'm glad I grabbed one. All of the responses I've received from other forums are along the same lines, "It didn't come with one? It should have".

I ordered it through my dealership. My co-workers in parts have ordered lots of things for me.

Thanks! I'm still very happy that I found one in YB.


At the moment I think I've reached the end of my to-do list, as far as OEM parts and accessories are concerned. I have a couple more things in mind, but until the aftermarket catches up I'm kind of at the end of the 'first phase' (Ti headlights maybe, as a final change? Tempting, but a $400 price tag).

One idea I've had for a while though is to wrap the roof in black vinyl... Brutality was able to put together a quick rendering for me.

I have yet to decide yes or no, but it is something I'm seriously considering, Thoughts?
