The paint on the back of the rear center reflector was pealing back leaving black blotchy marks around the Porsche lettering. I carefully pried out the glued fattener cross members so I could get at the entire backside. I was able to remove most of the paint with strong detergent and lots of elbow grease. I then matched the gray paint as best as I could and darn it, the result was no better that prior to all this work. Replacement units are really expensive and in fact not readily available in the aftermarket from what I can see. Is there a special paint that I should have used and if so where can I get it? As an alternative, do you have a source for a replacement unit?
