Default Gold Edition Package *update 12/5*- no 56k

This could go into My Ride, so if a mod thinks it'* more appropriate there, go ahead. As some of you may remember, in this thread, Wil was positive the gold edition package was a dealer only thing, and he was right. And I got my hands on one thanks to our new eBay forum.
eBay Link
Here'* what I got:

Two sets of gold edition Bonneville SE'* for the door trim, one Bonneville for the rear, two badges for the C-pillars, a strip of moulding to replace the chrome trim moulding around the car, some paperwork from the original packaging, a dealer badge and some 75th anniversary Pontiac badges he threw in for free. These kits cost the dealers 165 dollars originally. All that I didn't get was the gold pinstriping, which I can get at AutoZone for a few dollars if I decide to do it.

Here'* the before:


And I was running out of daylight sothe pictures are bad, but here'* an after shot


I didn't get to do the trim moulding as you can see, but I tried to get it out and failed. It says to take it out with a flathead screwdriver, but I ended up scratching some of the moulding and gave up. Any tips on taking it out?
Here are the badges for the C-pillars, but I don't like C-pillar badges for the most part, so I think I'm going to put them here once I clean the spots up. Here'* a test shot.

Yes, I did steal the idea from this site. I have two of these also, not sure what to do with tthem, or if anyone wants them, PM me.

So tomorrow I plan on trying to put in the gold trim, once someone gives me a tip on taking out the chrome. I will scan the paperwork once my scanner starts working again, it shows special dealer edition packages for the grand ams and sunfires too, pretty interesting read. If anyone comes across one these I reccomend it, it'sa quick and easy mod to make your car subtly different, but don't touch the backing of the adhesive. Trust me.
