Hood is the same, Headlights are the same, Bumper brace?? Dunno, might be different since the Sedan is wider in the nose.

I just completed a sedan front conversion to my bugeye wagon and all I needed was the fenders with plastic fender liners and the sedan front bumper. Everything else is the same.

It might be possible but it would look funny and not fit up right. The sedan fenders aren't much wider but they are different enough to need the fenders.

also keep in mind that the suspension is different, and your wheels will be further in than they would in a sedan.

I would love the Sedan front bumper so I can throw on a Prodrive lip.

IMHO the bumpers should have came with the prodrive lip, I think it completes the bumper.

Not as much as you would think, I'm still running wagon control arms and there is not much difference between how much the wheels stick out now vs stock fenders and bumper. Maybe 5-10mm per side.

You can put a wagon bumper on a sedan, but it leaves a gap and looks fugly. I don't think you can put a sedan bumper on a wagon though because it would stick out. (I'm talking about without the fenders.)
