    Body Panels

    This has prob been asked before, but can

    a hatchback bodypanel, like rear bumpers and front bumpers changeable from a coupe to a hatch or hatch to coupe?

    and would hatch back rear bumpers fit on a coupe?

    rear hatch back wouldn't fit onto or a coupe or the other way round.

    depends which panel you're talkin about but the likely hood of them fitting is fairly slim unless it's from the front end.

    YOu can put a front coupe bumper onto a hatch with some work to it

    front bumperes - yes, a straight swap.

    rear bumpers - no, due to different length overhangs on the coupe and hatch

    No work required to fit a front Coupe bumper on a Hatch, unless you count actually doing it!
