Panel sizes, Minuet to "regular" Argosy

I looked at a Minuet at the weekend. The front and rear 1/4 panels (front/rear curved) are all dented badly due to vandalism.
I have a bunch of original A/S panels that I know would fit my 28ft because I offered them up as a template and they are a match. Is a Minuet narrower? Or is it just shorter? Seems like a lot of trouble to go to to make completely different panels for a Minuet.
If I knew the panels were good, I would buy it.

Minuets are narrower. The quarter panels MAY be the same and the difference in width MAY be the center panel width. Sounds like you need to do some measuring.

I felt it was more likely to be the center panel that would make the difference because the windows are the same as well, so that would mean the same profile curve....wouldn't it?

Sounds like the center panel is the key.

either way you could just cut the panel smaller to fit. quick fix is just pull the dent and use aluminum body filler.

Its the curved panels so I am not sure that would work entirely satisfactorily but Its of no consequence now. I passed on the purchase. I remembered what the odour was in the trailer. Dead mouse. No way I want to start pulling panels just to find a mouse or ten.
