One of the old school Monte owners should be able to help you about questions if the conversion will work with out body modifications.

Owning an 06 SS I couldn't guide you on that

Barbara you have an older Monte can you convert trim from a LS to a SS?

I am not sure what, if any, of the trim is interchangeable between the SS and the non-SS, because I have not tried to put any SS parts on mine.

I honestly do not know the answer to your question. Sorry
I am sure someone else who knows more about part swapping will answer you soon.

It shouldn't be too hard to fabricate, there are lots of guys that I have seen do it to their cars. There is a guy in the next town that has an ss front end on his ls, so it has to be able to be done.

The side molding, will require you to drill and place hang clips (not certain of their actual name) just like on my car.
