Default kick panels

I have been searching far and wide to find kick panels that fit the bonne. Nobody sales them. Noooooobbbbbbbbooooooddddddyyyyyyy... So I got a bit creative and began pondering this simple question. "Can I use the same kick panels for a 2000+ Grand Prix on a 2000+ Bonneville?" Aren't the inteeriors just alike? Somebody please shine some light on thsi topic for me. I am posting a link to the Grand Prix page so you guys can see what it looks like(and I swear its like looking at my bonne but then again, I am sure that the inside of a horses A**hole looks just like the inside of a dogs...) But if you know a company that makes them, please let me know.

the GP and the Bonnbe are totally different......you can use the GP ones as a starting point but you gonna need to mod them heavily

Default kick panels

So what do you think? Should I start there or do you have any other ideas? I was really hoping for as little mods as possible

Having something custom made from scratch is likely the BEST way to approach this, however they are going to be more expensive to be totally custom. If you have any experience with fabrication, some great results could be achieved at home by modifying an existing design to fit properly, but will require some patients. perhaps ebay could be a good source for cheaper parts to experiment with?

I would definitely make them myself, it'* not that difficult, just takes awhile.
