What did you do with the keyhole? Just leave it under the molding strip?


I attached it to the rubber seal with the screws and left it under the new one yes

A word of warning that some of the G8 guys are just figuring out now. IF the battery goes Flat (like really dead) from a short or just a long storage drain we cannot get into the interiors of our cars with the key. The key mechanism in the doors is not a mechanical system of rods and cables but rather just an electrical switch. So the G8 guys with no trunk keyhole have to "reach rod" their cars to get into them when the battery goes flat. We have the option of a mechanical trunk key (hooray!) - But not if you cover it up!!

So if you are going to install the very bitchen "Caprice" or "Statesman" trunk molding part of that mod should be a relocation of the trunk key barrel. But where should I put it Steve?? You ask. Well I just so happen to have an answer for ya!:

Trunk Key Barrel Relocation

END OF WARNING------

It would be nice to see what the Holden parts look like, but I'll probably go with the OEM trim piece. Putting a rear view camera in the keyhole spot would be nice, but I'll probably not get that involved with it. Thank you.

The Australian parts pre backup camera are embossed with Statesman, Caprice, or Grange, after the added the backup camera it looks the same as ours

Here's an older picture of my car with the Aussie Caprice trim
