Different Fenders???

Well... I finally got the racecar back from the body shop...They pulled the frame quite well... putting everything back together...beating an banging metal... I went to put the fender on that I got from the junk yard and I could not make it fit right for the life of me... I tried everything.... Then I realized...that the bottom half of my orginal fender where it goes into the rocker pannel is bent at like a 90 degree...whereas the fender I got from the junk yard was bent at like a 30-45...

Now... Question:

Am I crazy or are there different fenders from 79-81... ? If so... My car is a 79...Can I only use 79 fenders?

And by the way...to the driver of the number 84 Acura who made this car require a 6 1/2 inch pull on the frame...... U! Did you find any more horsepower... I know it was a hard pill to swallow you were getting beat by a junk yard motor... btw... how much was that engine?
Dont worry... ill be in Memphis! Just to or maybe even did I mention U ?

79/80 fenders are the same for all SA, however 81 to 85 FB are different.

Since 79-85 is all on the same spec line it's perfectly legal to update/backdate fenders. My car is a 79 and I have 81+ fenders and bumpers just because it's next to impossible to find 79-80 parts anymore...
