    I think you pretty much have to make them. Here's what I ended up doing on my Atom 2.

    For the rear, drilled some holes, then used a nibbler to square off the holes, and then pressed in plastic inserts to for the screws (made for that purpose).


    Later, after the reverse & fog light housing assemblies cracked and melted from track use and I made a new aluminum panel that no longer uses them (weight reduction!):

    Looks much better that way if you ask me.

    And for the front, I ended up with this after way too much work (detailed in this photo gallery on my website):


    Wasn't sure how it would hold up, hanging it off of the signal stalk. Six plus years and 19k miles on the car with no cracks or other problems with that sinal stalk.
