can a Euro rotating grill badge work on a US grill without modification?

The front euro badge is just slightly a bit bigger than the US. Its the same size as the US rear badge. So it wouldnt sit in the recess and the US badge on a euro grill would leave a void.
OK listen up and work some imagination, this might be complicated to explain.
-On the US front badge, its held on by two plastic studs and two speed nuts.
-The US grill has the cutout for ther keyhole behind the badge.
- What I would do it cut off the left stud down to about an 1/8" just to grab in the hole and round the cut off so it slides in the hole.
-On the right stud, put a spring between the back of the grill and the speednut.
-Tighten just right so the spring holds the emblem tight but you can still rotate it up.
-You might need to JB Weld the nut in place so it doesnt loosen up.
I'll draw a picture and add to this in a few minutes.
