REAR BOOT LID COVER successfully replaced (Birkin 1993)

Rear boot lid cover replaced with new one which is purchased from U.K. London (j-f-customs), via ebay. Ordered Feb 25, Reached Japan Post Koishikawa Office March 7, after failure of absence notice, received March 18 at Home at Kohinata. Delivery from UK is fast, and the vendor was decent and honest.

Snap fasteners (buttons) are installed myself, after punching a hole. The last photo is snap fastener parts with a specialized tool (available at Amazon at low cost). Actually, the longitudinal is a bit short (the merchandise is for Caterham, series 3), so I  glued with bond the anterior edge of the new one with a remaining flap of the old one, after cutting out with scissor.          The ebay site is,
