Questions about ST165s

So I'm going to purchase an ST165 (Finally found one!) but it was damaged in a hit and run, the quarterpanel got squished (as well as the molding on the quarterpanel, I'll post a picture) So I have these questions:

Q1: Is the molding around the ST165 the same as the FWD models?

Q2: Does anyone have a picture of an AWD ST165 with the molding deleted? (Doubt I'll take this route, but figured I would ask)

Q3: Are the quarterpanels on the AWD and FWD models the same?
I want to get a quarterpanel to replace this ruined one (Weld it on) Do I need one from the AWD models? or do the GTS FWD ones match?

I'm not to sure if they are the same for models, but i know this is a pretty boxy car,so I would imagine it would be to hard to get some metal and shape it.???

The lower trim (skirts and front air dam) are different on GT4's compared to the others.

This is what a GTS fender looks like on my ST165.

I imagine the rear looks the same.

It looks like the lower trim is intact, so you *should* be able to make the FWD fender work.

I don't know how easy it is to attach though.

Looking at mine I'm going to have to make new brackets (they're rusted to shiiiiiit) then attach those, then attach the trim to that.

Orrrr I can get my original fender fixed..which I'm gonna try to do. :|

So I should be able to cut the ruined quarterpanel out, cut a good one out of a FWD model, weld it in, and then re-use my trim?

You would need to make the holes for the fasteners. Otherwise it´s the same
