Welcome in italy! The country where every import car is made different from each other in terms of lights and requirements to get them registered! It could be a pain but i'll try to give you some directions.
- for the VIN in my car i had it stamped on one of the strut tower braces, first ripped off some paint to obtain a raw grey background and them with a hammer and a metal stamp "printed it". the most important thing for them is that the vin stays on a non-removable part of the car. If you look at the passenger side strut support in my hood photo, you'll notice it.
- for the lights, you basically have to add a marker light in the main headlamp, many drill the headlight and insert an additional little lamp, you can reply me "i have already the yellow ones on the lower bumper", but for the euro laws this direction must stay not more far that some cm from the H13 main lamp so that's why many do that.
-then you need to add some side markers, these must stay on space between the side mirror and the middle of the front tire, many do like me (look the lights i've added near the gt badge, you can select one in a common auto shop, mines are from the Opel (GM) Astra model and they're quite nice, or you can mount the 2005-2009 mirror with lights incorporated (unfortunately they don't do it for the 2010-on), and then on the backlights side direction must be yellow, so you had to add them, as well as rear fog lights.
I tried to give you an idea, there is a very clever guy that do this "euro conversions", specialized on Mustang (don't go to the first person available, is very easy to overload one of the lines of the power supply and blow the controllers), everyone (included me) can speaks great things of him. He's got also a website (he also have an activity as american spare parts dealer), it's www.ricambiamericani.com
, there you'll find email address and cell phone number, he's from north italy (Padova), but i think he can travel. Or as second options you can go to a specialized agency near Bologna called american vip (www.americanvip.it
). Consider that this in any case will have a cost. Call both of them and ask for a quote.
I know personally Luca and i can say he's a true expert, he solved many issues between my friends, he's the reference person for Mustang in Italy for our club, he has service manuals, schemes and know how to work properly.
by the way, i don't know if i'm wrong, but i think that if the car is still registered you have the ability to travel freely for 1 year here, like a tourist. without adapting anything!
