Euro look for the USDM

I know the authentic and replica (shallow depth) rear bumper covers exist, but has a company ever made any kind of add on or whole bumper that replicates the EDM look (the lower foglights in particular)?! I'm trying to see if there's a way around cutting holes in my bumper to fit the euro lights I've been hoarding!

I'm in a group buy for the Extreme Dimensions f-sport RS look-alike for the narrow body, and I'm trying to amass the other little goodies for the look... mayhaps we could talk them into making a few if enough of us wanna be the beta-testers.

Or am I stuck looking for an SVT piece?!

That's a u.s 00-04 top with a u.s 05-07 lower not any euro about it. But it is an example of grafting parts together

I thought about asking a uk guy to cut out the rear bumper fog/reverse lights with about 2 1/2 inches around them and ship them to me. Then I could graft them into my old Svt bumper that way stock euro lenses are a direct fit cause of using the bumper holes( kinda like a bucket). Shipping 2 small peices would be cheaper than a whole bumper. If it comes out clean u could get extreme dimensions or josh(carbon fiber) to make copies!

I have read that the curves at the ends of the euro rear bumper have a different radius than those of the USspec bumper. But my question is, how does one go about grafting pieces of that "plastic" material together?

I've got a bunch of info from my brother from a company that makes plastic repair and plastic "welding" products... the idea of cutting a EDM rear feels wrong, but I do need those tabs...

There was one made several years ago that had the outlines of the rear fogs in it, and I had seen at least one person cut it out and install rear fogs. I can't recall the name, but it is one of the defunct companies, making finding one very hard.
