Well I'm new to this so i hope it all goes well ... i have a 1971 pontiac lemans sport convertible. and i have found out there is not a lot of reproduction parts out there for a 1971 lemans .. i also did not see parts for a 1971 GTO ... but when searching the web i found that people with a 1971 lemans swapped everything over to a 1970 GTO which i see there are a lot of parts for.
so my question ls with the 1970 fender will they mount up to the 1971 doors .. i know i would need most of the front clip and i see allot of kits on e bay. but who would be the best to buy from and which would have the best fit .. any help would greatly be appreciated

:cool: Yes, the fenders all have the same contour at the doors. The switch is pretty straight forward with only one glitch.

The glitch is the Endura bumper for the '70 GTO. The available reproduction is made from fiberglass and is considered a "rough" piece-- meaning you'll have to have a bodyman with fiberglass experience finish it. I'd check around for a body shop that specializes in Corvette repair or maybe a fiberglass boat repair shop to finish the bumper for you.

Or you could buy a used Endura bumper off eBay or Craig's list.

No repro '70 or '71-72 doors are avail, too many nice originals floating around. If the doors were repopped overseas they would most likely need a LOT of work to fit, just like the repop '70 fenders, there is a reason those of us working on '70's repair our original fenders.
