Default fixing up a '05 SE

accuired a 2005 bonneville SE that was hit in the frontend (hood, fenders, lights, bumper and RH ground effect)...right now it'* on the side line as we have 2 other cars we're re-doing. few questions:
1) since we have to buy a new front bumper and one ground effect below the door, will a SSEi/SLE/GXP front bumper fit?
2) As for the fog lights, do you need different mounting brackets for the different bumpers or do they work on both styles?
3) will it be worth buying SLE/GXP ground effects for both sides or just get another SE GFX to replace the righthand side?
4)Also any cool aftermarket hoods or headlights available?

Not sure what you mean there. The only way to accomplish what you want imo is to go around the whole car with all the cladding for an SLE. That would be the front & rear bumpers, and side body cladding left & right.

the bumpers will work but i believe you will need the correct brackets aswell

the rockers/ground affects from a GXP/SSEi/SLE will fit, however will not match up withouyt the extra door moldings aswell.

Headlights - nothing is available, but many of us remove the amber section to keep a cleaner look
