When I did mine on a Monte I used the stock rear bumper and cut out the tail piece for the trunk because I didn't want to loose ant rear by cutting the trunk.

Take a look at my site, I think I have a few on there that might help you. If not I can take a few and send them to you.

With me, I had to cut the **** out of the tail piece, per IMCA Rules. Trunk lid has to stay factory. All I did is trim a little at a time until the trunk sits inside the tail.

If you have any questions, send me an email, I'll try to help.

I fabricated a rear bumper and then just cut the trunk lid. Of course we don't have any rules about stock trunk lid or bumper.
