    Estate boot plastic removal Question

    Hello Everyone

    Has anyone removed the plastic interior wheel arches from an estate car.
    Need to remove the steel cross beam that supports the rear seats to enable some welding to be done in the front corners of the spare wheel well.

    many thanks
