Default Rear Fender Fitment: coupes, verts, and Z06 all same, right?

As the title states, I'm under the impression that the coupe, vert, and FRC all use the same rear fenders. The seller's not so sure, I wonder if he's thinking C6. I figure someone on here ought to be able to settle this. The brake duct is in the rocker panel, so I'm not seeing a reason they'd be any different.

They're not all the same, only the fronts are all the same.

The interface with the roof panel and trunk/hatch varies a bit. I think there are 3 different fenders: coupe, frc/z06, vert. The frc and vert might be the same (trunk lid is the same) but the coupe is definitely different.

If you look on the board for the Carbon Fiber Rears there are some detailed pictures. Basically the difference is in the length and width of the part that goes under the Halo area. On the Convertibles and FRC its longer but narrower and on the Coups its wider but shorter. You can ask forum Quick Z06 as he sells the Corvette Creationz ones

I thought the vert/Z06 ones were the same but I am not sure on that. Definitely not the same as the coupe.

Looks like the vert and z06/frc ones might or might not be the same, some people say they are and some say they are not.

This is a great illustration of the difference between a coupe and a vert. Sounds like the vert fender can be used on the Z06 with trimming. Will do a little more digging for additional warm fuzzies.
