Default VS980 Outer shell replacement

Has anybody ever successfully replaced the back cover & buttons on the Verizon version with the international versions? Is this even possible? From what I've been looking at, what you would have to do is replace the rear housing & the door and that should be it.
Would this interfere with wireless charging?
Does the ports line up?
Will the rear door even fit back on?
The reason I want to do this is so that i will be able to use regular cases for this phone instead of using the limited selection of cases for Verizon

EDIT: Nevermind, it's not possible. I can tell just by looking at the inside of the battery cover of each phone. Different contacts.

Due to wireless charging. Also the reason buttons are different.
