That's a fantastic idea! Very subtle and very stylish.

Whilst sat in traffic I have a habit of inspecting the interior/trim and if I find a imperfection or marks I start obsessing about replacing it. The latest part to not pass close scrutiny was the drivers side inner door handle/opener (8N0837020A7PE) - TBF the slightest of marks but it annoyed the hell out of me.

Bagged a NOS replacement online and will fit ASAP - LOL

The QS never came with a boot load cover/parcel shelf (8N8867769C 18S) of other TT models, though all the fittings are there for one. This follows the models stripped out/reduced weight theme - but the shelf hardly weighs a lot!?

I wanted the option of having one to (mostly) cover the contents on holidays and at shows etc so found one on Shpock for a reasonable £35 that had all the brackets/tabs intact/unbroken and was near enough unmarked.

Advert image:



No way was this just going straight on the car! - these shelves have a notorious reputation for horrendous squeaking/creaking plastics when fitted. So before that I aim reduce/eradicate any potential noise by disassembling it and reassembling with some preventive measures added - It also needs a thorough clean!

I'd be tempted to machine just enough off and then have the four rings machined in to replace the Porsche logo

Continued with the Parcel Shelf and carefully separated the upper/lower frames with a trim tool slid along/around the seam.



The two frames then release from each other - revealing the net fastenings.



On the lower frame you can see plugs of hard bonding material - filling a trough on the lower frame in to which which a corresponding lug on the upper frame is pressed to hold the two together.



Over time these have become separated from the plastic and can easily be pulled away from the surface - pressing/moving them in situ also makes them squeak/creak so I suspect this is a significant contributor to the noise.
For reassembly I'm replacing this hard bond material with a permanently flexible, clear silicone sealant.





Unlike other examples at resolving the squeaks/creaking using silicone sealant, I intend to be conservative and only apply it at these points and perhaps a bead adjacent to/along the outer seam. As the upper frame curves convexly to the flat faced lower - it appears theres only contact at these points.
