I've seen confirmation that the doors from a sedan won't fit a wagon and vice-versa; but will the panels? They seem to be identical, but after I slide them in the window groove at the top, the pins are about 3/4" north of where they should be. The front door panels from the donor sedan went in fine, and they look brilliant. But I cannot seem to get the rear door panels to fit!

Front doors are identical including panels. The rear doors are different, as you found out, with the sedan and wagon, including panels.

It turns out that the panels are nearly identical. The only differences are the placement of the hole for the plastic pin at the back edge of the door and one of the lower screws. Otherwise, they are the same. We solved that problem by drilling a new hole, and ignoring the plastic pin.

The rears have one other difference. The cutout at the C pillar (rear window frame) is deeper on the wagon, and shallower on the sedan. The sedan will cover the wagon window reveal, but if you try to put the wagon panels on a sedan, there will be a space below the end of the window reveal.
