Coupe rear bumper swap

So I had an idea. I have an 09' sedan and out of curiosity how hard do you guys think it would be to do a rear bumper swap? Switch lights, and trunks. I think it'd be a good way to kill a weekend but the wiring and body work may be a little too much. Also, is my idea just stupid lol

won't work, the body is different between the coupe and the sedan and everything is a different shape and size

Would be a bunch of work. I personally think the sedan bumper looks great if you have an aftermarket set of tail lights.

The nice thing about the sedan trunk is it's a lot cleaner debadged.

Don't the coupe front bumper cover and side skirts fit the sedan also? I thought it was only the rear bumper cover thats different and won't interchange.

BTW Hailcesar, what color are your rims (5 spokes in your sig pick) and what size are your tires? I just picked up some 17" 5 spokes and like the look of yours.
