door panels, halp!

Ok, I have been working on a 79 firebird formula. (Body, motor, interior). I decided to do the door panels my self but I'm wondering what wold fit on my doors, maybe 70-73 firebird or? Can any one help me?
Ps. Realy just wondering. About the inner window weatherstripping that attaches to the door panel.

If I were you, I would go to a site dedicated to Firebird parts to see what is offered. It's one of the most popular cars out there. So you should not have a problem. They'll be able to tell you what interchanges.

Your car is a 2nd generation car with the same basic body style from 1970 to 1981. Front door panels from most of those year cars along with Camaros from those years should fit your car. If I were you, I'd stick to front door panels from 1976 to 1980. Here's a link to some 78 to 81 door panels on E-Bay: CLICK HERE

The rear side panels are another thing, and may not be interchangeable from one year to the next depending on the rear seat.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
