I made a cardboard cutout of the garnish with holes where the bolts are. Then used it to mark where to drill...was quite simple in the end...

How much are they as I was thinking about this too...Is that the piece of chrome above the rego plate as on the Fairmont?

I was also wanting the Ghia rear rego plate surrounds too

Although don't look good on Fairmonts/ghias in painted in shockwave IMO

Where are these available from?

Man you actually made a EL gli front look good, it's amazing, that EF lower section improves the looks 10 fold.
