Have you considered going at it with a machine and some progressive cutters and polish?

Perhaps something was poured on the hood and let sit? If you can't polish out ask forum member itsnotanova (Woody). He parting out a whole bunch of boxsters. There's also a few recommended dismantler businesses - LA Dismantlers and another one in OK (I forget the name).

Richard,

Since you are near LA you should try Los Angeles Dismantler - Specializing in Used Porsche Parts for Boxster, Cayman & 911. I am not affiliated with them... I have done business with them and found their pricing reasonable. They are in Sun Valley, CA. Talk to Peter, he is a good guy. Let us know your experience.

i might try LA dismantler they are a few minutes from my house, i believe it was probably just a cheap paint job the kind that last a few years its just deteriorating bad, i tried itsnotanova but he never seems to get back for some reason i have bought a few small things in the past with no issues.....i will look into all options also might get some quotes into painting just the trunk lid.... ...thanks much!

Woody (itsnotanova) is usually very responsive...must be a reason...

You might just find a replacement one for a little more than the paint job...;-) Once a paint job is not done correctly it is quite difficult to fix it...

Wise decision to look at all options.

If you talk to Peter, tell him 'Mahendra says hi'. I bought a 2004 Boxster with a busted engine from him for my EV conversion project. Project still WIP...
