    Thats what i thought from my previous novas ,I will give it a closer inspection with torch in the front arch to see if i can find if its been glassed in ,
    i hope not as the bolts will then be a nightmare to remove , lol

    could have been put in then classed the holes over i was thinking about filling the small holes with a night rider led stripe in bits so every bulb goes in one of there holes as it is black

    I think your only answer on a Mk2 is to go in through the front wheel arches. The Mk1 (open intake) normally has a row of access holes, but this isn't possible on the Mk2. You could have a fight on your hands if any of the fixtures are corroded!

    Good luck!

    I would suggest, that you replace everything with stainless steel, if you haven't already planned to. They might cost a little extra for stainless nuts & bolts, but could pay dividends if you ever have to take the front undersill again.

    Just don't over-tighten them, stainless steel is more prone to shearing than normal ones

    JasonI folowed the instructions in the Mk2 build manual when I did mine. So I had two stainless M8 bolts and nylocs on each side (access from wheel arches) and 3 large stainless self tappers accross the front, with access holes. I did toy with the idea of filling the holes with filler but wasnn't sure I wouldn't need it off again so they are still holes. Best of luck hunting. If they are filled or glassed in you might find them with one of those builders stud wall finder gizmos.
