I am getting ready to purchase an 05 Elise with really low mileage. The previous owner has disassembled the trunk down to basically the subframe. When that was done it took away the supporting structure for the trunk latch. I have not had any luck finding a picture or part number to see how it was taken apart. Has anyone on here done this and posted pictures. I don't mind that it is taken apart, but I want to resupport the trunk latch. I would prefer to do it so it at the very least looks professional. So, I am wondering if there was some sort of stock brace that he removed or cut. I have attached a picture. You will notice on the top right of the picture there is an aluminum piece of metal which was cut. This piece seems to have attached the latch area to something else. Thanks for your help.
