Actually the panel and the burb are quite different under the skin. The entire floor in the panel is different. On the burb it has a rear door on the passenger side and the drivers side basically has the structure of a rear door beneath the outer skin. roll down windows and such. Ive seen several opened up and made into a usable door. Not easy, but doable.

So the windows wouldn't match up ( I checked this first ), plus the angles are off If I was to make flush fit openings for them.

Hindsight is 20/20 of course, I used to have a couple of burbs of that era ... shoulda kept them and let the panel go down the road =)
