I am looking to get a new drivers front fender and hood for my 82 BRAT. Color does not matter at all, but I know that grille and headlight designs differed year to year. So will the body parts off of ANY wagon, brat, hatch, etc fit on my BRAT? (I figure they should, but want to ask before blowing $50 on parts)

hoods for all "ea81" bodies will interchange just fine.

fenders will also, but with a few issues.

80-82 had the telescoping antennas on the drivers side, and 83+ had a stick antenna on the passenger side.

so you could end up with 2 antennas, or none :)

also, the 80-81 fenders had a bit more of a inner lip where the headlight bezels fit, so if you are fitting an older fender onto a quad headlight set-up front end, you will have to trim a little of the lip, but it's hidden anyway....

It appears from my pictures that I have a drivers side antenna. So if I do get a new fender (its not really THAT bad) I will have to make sure to find one with an antenna hole I guess. The hood is the major thing though, it has rust holes in the front of it.

Hmmm looking at the pics... I cant even see the dent, so either the pics I have are old, or I was seeing things when I thought I saw a dent on the fender :lol:

The fender should be fine mike. Like Mick said, our 82 had the driver side ant. unless you want to go stock you can always add an after market ant. somewhere. No big deal.
