Why would you want that? No one I know of sells a "stick on" emblem and factory had the pins and nuts. That is correct and easily installed. If you are afraid to drill holes in the paint you should put masking tape down before you drill and then touch up with a little paint around the holes to prevent rust. I hope this helps.

If you want a stick on GTO badge, the "new" 2004 -2006 GTOs probably used them. Won't be the correct size or font though.

The exact reason is because I don't want to drill holes. The car has already been painted and I have seen professionals screw up this easy installation. To complicate matters, I don't know if during the repaint if the deck lid was replaced or the holes were filled so I don't know what I would be drilling into.

If it doesn't look original, I would prefer nothing.

Try looking on the inside of the trunk where the badge goes, you might be able to see where the holes were.

No evidence of holes on the back side either.

Could be a Lemans decklid. Look in the center portion and see if you can spot where the hole were filled in where the letters PONTIAC should have been. Again, drilling holes with the method I mentioned will work fine. Start with a 1/8" drill bit at the proper spacing between the pins using a template. If you need exact dimensions someone on here will be able to help. I'm off to work now or I'd give you them myself. Good luck!

Oh, and it's not a GTO without the emblems .

Emblems don't make it a GTO my friend. The VIN and the numbers matching drive train make this a real GTO.
