Can you post some pictures of those fogs from the back? You may or may not be able to fit HIDs if they have a cover on the back. If they don't have a cover, they'll fit just fine, but I would be careful with using HID'* for fogs. That has a very high tendency to blind oncoming drivers due to the flood of light that fog lights usually create by nature. HID'* produce less heat than 55W halogens, so that shouldn't be a problem for you at all.

As for the third brake light overlay, it should be just a sticker that you place. Not sure where you'd get one though.

Yeah the overlays are just stickers, I actually made my own. Not sure if a grand prix one will fit a bonneville, but there is one that says pontiac here: http://www.zzpdecals.com/products/97-03_overlays.htm. That'* where I go when I look for decals.
