is this in an el wagon as the number plate light is in the bumper for a sedan. im guessing sedan, the wiring is for the boot lock actuator. the clips that hold the wiring to the boot hinges?, they have 2 prongs,shaped like an arrow,they need to be squeezed together with a v shaped trim tool.

you can get side cutters under it and pull it out, sometimes the clips are able to be reused too.

how much, and let us know how it goes, as I'm keen to do something for my roof particulary, it's by far my biggest problem currently.

No you can't.

Trust me, I've done both.

You need more of the Jaycar stuff to equal one layer of dynamat.
