    Not sure I’m seeing that correctly. The lens should go inside the trunk with a gasket. All the camaro places sell them. The screw goes thru the rear body panel, thru the gasket and lens, and attach to the license plate light housing.

    Since it’s not OEM it could be homemade outside covers. Unless he installed them
    on the outside instead of the inside.

    Thanks all. I replaced the interior gaskets and lenses but I thought wmmech had something different on the exterior. From the looks of a close up COPO included, the exterior lens looks like the interior lenses. I like the look but I won't so install. To often my initial reaction to something other then stock and doing it turned into something I did not like resulting in a waste of money and time.
