So, I've got a 91 Geo Metro, and had to replace the latch mechanism with a 92-94 latch mechanism, and so the rods for the door mechanism that go to the interior handle, are positioned differently from my native door handle. I'm a pretty big noob to this mechanical stuff. I'm not entirely sure what the compatibilities are between the different interior door panels. I understand that the interior door panels for the 89-91 & 91-94 are different, but I have both types of door handle rod so that either door panel would work. I'd prefer the 92-94 door panel, because I like the door handle better, but the 89-91 interior door handle panel would also be fine. Having all the screws would be a bonus, but not necessary.

Also, could anyone familiar with the parts confirm that the later model door panel will simply bolt into the earlier model door? IE, that the screw/fastener holes are in the same place between the two different style door panels.

I live in Las Vegas, but I'm willing to drive a fair distance (~350, as far as San Diego, Phoenix, or Bakersfield, flagstaff) to pick up the parts, or possibly pay to have them shipped.

I believe the door panels are different for the 89, then the 90-91 and 92-94. The 89 had the seatbelt harness attached to the frame instead of the door, so the panels wouldn't work.
