Default Compatible years for swapping body parts..?

Hello all.
Just got another pt for our next teen driver, Super great deal so I have room to fix it up nice like. went to the local pick a part with my list of items and they wont sell any parts off a rear hatch if its in good un-dented condition.. they want to sell it as a whole.. same with so many parts - you cant just buy a steering wheel you have to buy the entire column with it.

So my question is, since my 2001 Pt has a couple small dings in the back hatch and the parts yard will sell me one complete from a 2006 in near perfect condition for 75.00 - will it fit..

I intend to have the whole car painted so color is not an issue..

So I guess what I'm asking is what years am I restricted too body part wise with my 2001 pt for parts.

Thank you..!

The latches are different in the G2's 2006-2010, I don't think anyone here has made it work. It also uses a touch pad to open.
2000-2005 would be a simple switch out.

EDIT: The touch pad started in 2005...so 2000-2004 is what your looking for.

Thanks for the info.. almost bought the hatch but figured I better ask first.

So when I'm walking the recycle yard, am I safe to pick parts off 04 and down ( none turbos' ) I need a few things for the interior - carpet mats, dash board and like, A couple things for the exterior - sunroof and back hatch, and the engine compartment needs a few things as well - hood liner and other none essential engine items..

All essential items related to electrical, drive-train and suspension will be purchased rebuilt or new.

For the paint job I was thinking of going with the now in style flat look.

Thanks in advance.

Turbo, non turbo...body part & interior are pretty much the same 2000-2005.
Turbo uses a slightly different looking bumper & lower grill.
The rear hatch is really the only think I can think of that you can't use from 2005.
Engine wise, leave the 2003 GT alone...it uses different Fan, PCM, Injectors.

I have a G2 (2006), so I'm not totally sure if there is anything else.
