1970 Tempest and LeMans fenders are die stamped the same. Emblem piercing holes will be the only difference between the Tempest and LeMans. '70 GTO is stamped totally different up front down low, it is also die stamped for the recessed GTO side marker light. '71 and '72 LeMans (chrome bumper) fenders are their own style, though many emblem piercing versions.
1970 Pontiac A-body 2 door hardtop all used the same door.
The mirror is positioned in a different spot on a '70 door, than it is on a '71-72, that is what makes the '70, one year only. In a jamb for a '70 door, a skilled metal man can carefully weld up the mirror holes on a '71-72 door and cut a new hole for the remote mirror cable. OR...one can track down the correct door.
Have a pair of nice rust free straight '70 GTO doors, am looking for similar condition '71-72 2 door hardtop doors (can't be '72 Luxury LeMans doors with all the trim mtg holes).
