Default SLE or SSEi Body cladding and bumper covers on SE?

Would it be possible to put the body cladding, sideskirts and bumper covers of an SLE or SSEi model Bonneville on an SE? if so how would the cladding be attached to the body of the car? I would have to pull it off of a donor car in a scrap yard. Thanks for your help!

for the side cladding you will need to get them from a junk yard. they attach by double sided tape and plastic retainers. the ones on the rocker mouldings are one time use only. on the doors it is the annoying little christmas tree type that hold it to the door at the same place your SE mouldings are then double sided tape around the perimeter. i am swaping mine out for the GXP style this summer

sounds like the body update is the least of your worries

the hood needs to be replaced and so does the header panel but the car is a champ. there is no body damage other than that, the internals are fine, the alignment is in check and there is no compromise to the underpinnings. i was suprised. the collision was at a 45 degree so it was more of a glance that stopped the car. it was at like 5 mph on solid ice in a parking lot. no one was hurt and my insureance didnt even go up. i thought i was pretty fortunate for once
