    it will need drilled into the bootlid. If you are handy enough with handtools then go for it, make sure it is very well marked up first and you are happy with the position, then drill out with a 5mm or 6mm drill bit cant remember exactly which.

    You will get bolts at a good hardware shop or vauxhall will sell them. a 4mm thread is M4, 5mm M5 etc etc. Also brush some laquer around the bare metal where you have driled to help prevent rust.

    If you would rather a bodyshop do this it shouldnt be too expensive at a guess.

    They would, but:

    It would cost roughly the same as a bungalow.

    They won't be able to fit you in until 2018.
