Holden Conversion

I am working on converting my '16 SSB into a Commodore, and I just wanted to ask in a thread so I have everything in one place. I found some answers in searches, but I thought this would help others out as well. Where is the best place to purchase (either based on price or ease/time to get)?

1. Front/Trunk Holden(Lion Emblem) - ($252) 2016: http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/oe-gm/92276989 ?? ($210) 2014-15: http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/oe-gm/92281246
2. Side Holden SS's - ?
3. Rear Holden SS - ?
4. LS3 Front Lower Grille - ?
5. Holden Steering Wheel/Airbag Cover - ($559AU) : http://www.originalpartsgroup.com.au...ET--CHEVY.html
6. Trunk Redline VF2 emblem - ?
7. Holden Lion Wheel Caps - Chevy Accessories $45
8. Holden Cargo Tray - Chevy Accessories $175
9. Holden Front and Rear Interior Car Mats - Chevy Accessories $145
10. MyLink upgrade to Holden(and color changes to everything) - ?


I will update this last as people post and help keep it a one stop shop with prices and notes on how long things generally take to get. If you have input, please feel free to comment so we can it all on here. Thank you!

Message forum member Crazy Paul. He ships this stuff from Australia. Got mine from him pretty easy a few weeks ago. He can probably get you literally everything on your list.

i bought my SS side and rear from here, they're aftermarket but they still do the job. I have some spare holden SS's that are gray like the ones on the site. Picture is old, i took that before i changed out grille.Shop holden SS emblem online Gallery - Buy holden SS emblem for unbeatable low prices on AliExpress.com

Re 4. LS3 Front Grille - For some reason Chevrolet wanted the cross bar on the lower grille cut out to install the SS badge, so it's actually recessed into the bumper. I don't know if the LS3 badge would fit cleanly in this opening, but if not you'll also need a new lower grille which will have the front licence plate mounts formed into it.

That's my plan. I was going to go plateless, now I'll just get the Aussie lower grille and install the front plate.

Yes I have a 2016 so is the 92276989 part number correct for the trunk emblem and front emblem/grill? It's $252 on the GMPartsDirect website: GRILLE KIT | Genuine GM | 92276989

Where did you order your LS3 lower grill from and how much was it?
