82-92 Camaro fenders fit 82-92 Camaros & 82-92 Firebird fenders fit 82-92 Firebirds.

But the early rears can give you a little trouble mounting ground fx, so try for 86+ fenders.

All the Camaro doors will match and 86+ front ends will match.

Yes. All 82-92 Camaro hoods fit all 82-92 Camaros & all 82-92 Firebird hoods fit all 82-92 Firebirds.

The years don't matter, only the presence, or lack of, ground fx matters. Even if the new fender doesn't have any? It only a matter of drilling holes & the ground fx will cover it all up anyways, so nobody will ever see the old holes.

Re: which front end,fenders, will fit onto a 1989 camaro rs convertible

you'll want a 90 and older fender with the correct slots for the front ground effect. 91-92 is different. also, you will need to trim the end near the door and reweld the convertible bracket to the fender. you'll trim 6-8 inches of metal from the back half of the fender. hoods are all the same, any will do 82-92. doors are mostly the same, make sure you get a camaro door or you might have to drill holes to fit your ground effects correctly.

Re: which front end,fenders, will fit onto a 1989 camaro rs convertible

ive got a pair of new fenders at my dads house, for a pre 90 car. where they mount to the side ground effects about the RS emblems, the convertible has a boxed frame along the side of the car, which gets in the way of a normal fender, so they had to cut both front fenders and add brackets to them from asc, so you will need to remove the brackets from the old fenders, mark and cut the new fenders and put the brackets on the new fenders. as fas as the years of the fenders, the 1991-1992 fenders have 2 slots to mount the front fround effect, the 90 and older have 2 holes i believe, they will only fit to the correct ground effect. to put the new gfx on the car you'll need to get the 91-92 front fenders, and the 8 91-92 specific pieces for the kit. the front ground effect, the rockers and door pieces, rear 1/4 extentions and full rear bumper. can get costly for a good kit. or just do the front and sides but the rear wont look right. the convertible section should have all the info you need.

any iroc/Z28 hood is the same, 85-92 Z28's were all the same hood. if it has removable louvers or blisters it will fit any year

If he tried a Firebird hood, then no. If he used a Camaro hood, then there is no way to say this nicely....He did something wrong.


ALL 1982-1992 Camaro hoods will fit ALL 1982-1992 Camaros

And....

ALL 1982 Firebird hoods will fit ALL 1982-1992 Firebirds

NO 1982-1992 1982-1992 Camaro hood will fit a 1982-1992 Firebird & NO 1982-1992 Firebird hood will fit a 1982-1992 Camaro.

a non Z28 hood will fit on a z28. the appearance is the only difference. Yes a non convert. fender will fit on a convert. ground effect mounting just wont be on the fender. make it fit dont know what else to say.

Like said above if you get fenders off a non vert car they will need to be cut to clear the braces that were installed by asc.An 82 Berlinetta hood will fit without a problem

The later hoods fit better then the earlier one IMO.

In other words, the front trailing edge on the '88 and up hoods is sharper and fits better then the earlier hoods with less gap on the front bumper.
