Question Can an 1974-77 inner taillight panel modification be done for a '70?

I have a 1970 Camaro that I'm restoring and the previous owner cut the inner taillight panel off and welded on the outer panel without putting the inner panel back on for some strange reason. Needless to say, it is need for strength, safety, and also not to mention the trunk lock assembly attaches to it. And as you probably already know, they don't make aftermarket 1970-72 inner taillight panels. I do have an inner panel that I cut off a donor car but it is really rotted out pretty bad. I was wondering if I could modify or combine the one I have with a 1974-1977 taillight panel and make it work? Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Malo

I looked at a 74 panel before and thought the same thing, but noticed that a 69 camaro panel is a little bit more closer to the 70-3. The 74 is very much different if I remember correctly. I may be wrong, but it would not hurt to check out the 69.
