EU version tail light "retrofit" to the american version. ?

Hello,

I'm new here, but already follow a lot this forum.
My doubt now is about the EU tail lamps fitting in the american camaro.

It is possible?
Can I find those tail lights OEM from factory?
If possible will work with the same harness or will have to modify as well?



Sorry for the english.. Thanks!

Nilton

Looks like the bumper cover will have to be changed, too. The area between the lights appears to be different.

(big/small, pink/black, ....) hahaha...! lambo doors i only liked in that freedom patriot camaro, but not because the doors, the hole project. i have my website the californiagps.com.br and i offer some camaro acessories here... will try to get this grille and offer to my clients...
