    Been looking at changing up the door panels in my 71' Dart and really like some of the 72' Duster door panels. The front door panels would be the same I think, but the rear panels don't look the same as the dart panels, but can they be used in a dart?

    Fronts yes, but rears are different and don't interchange,.

      The '72 Scamp is hardtop like the Dart though, so take a look at those panels.

      I was looking at this set, the rear panels look the same for the most part, but appear to more closely follow the wheel tub.

      notice on rear panels pictured...no window crank hole or armrest mounting location.
      Of course the size and shape is also different.

      I believe these panels have the hole locations on the back side, but not on the fabric side. These are from Parts Unlimited

      70-72 duster/71-72 demon rear panels will not fit your application. period.
      its more than just the window crank and armrest, the size/shape are different.

      Follow up on this topic. Not being one to be discouraged from trying something I went ahead and ordered a set of front and rear panels from Parts Unlimited. Yes the front panels work fine, the only you need to do is knock out the pre-punched holes and cut the vinyl for access through the holes. Now the rear panels of course are pre-punched for the Duster, so I took my Dart panels and used them to mark the window crank and arm rest hole location and carefully cut them out. The panels do fit as you can see in the photos, but they end up just behind the face of the rear seat. I plan on picking up some black vinyl and use it to help hide this, but it's not really that noticeable as it is. I still have spray the edge moulding to match the new color but all-in all it did not turn out bad.
