    Front fenders are going to be 49-50 only, 51 and 52 front fenders are different.

    The doors are going to be Fleetline only, but I think all 49-52 Fleetline doors should be the same, except for the trim holes. Someone should correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure that's how it goes.

    here's the poop... as stated fleetline doors are different as they slope downwards towards the rear. ... they are also actually lower towards the front too and I'm almost certain the wing windows are different. I know for sure the fleetline windshield is 1" or so shorter then the "styline" coupes and sedans. I got a fleetline door that is so cherry I'm going to cut the top off and weld on the top of my coupe door to put it on the car...

    as for the front sheetmetal... you can put the 49 - 50 fenders on a 51 - 52 provided you retain the grille that went to the fenders. front splashpans are year specific also. hoods all interchange. all bodystyles for every given year used the same fenders.

    the riveted on front part of the inner fenderwells may have to be changed between the two styles to go with whatever fendr/grille you are using... not 100% sure on that one.
