if anyone else with an SSEi or SLE would like to do this all you need is the GXP rear cover all the inernals such as the foam and supports are the exact same! The cover from GM is $526 and the painting is about $250 (professionaly done)

Only thing I think looks a little odd is when you see the body lines on the front bumper flowing to the door cladding and then the rear is smooth.

If you take that difference away, the paint and install look great!

It does make the back end look a bit tougher.
