Default Diff btw 09 Mustang Conv't and Hardtop Body

Hello
I have a 09 Mustang GT/CS convertible that has a front hit and need body parts and was wondering if a convertible body is just a hard top with the top cut off and all the body parts identical or are some incompatible.
The parts I need for this convertible is basically whole left side of car
fender/hood
strut tower/frame
door
rear quarter

Will these parts from a 05-09 hardtop fit or should I look at only convertibles (harder to find) at auctions/parts yards?

Fender/hood are the same to my understanding
Strut tower should be the same, the GT Verts all came with braces IIRC
The doors on the hardtop and vert are both Frameless, but Iím unsure if they are interchangeable, Iím sure Co-Part could confirm that easily.
Rear quarter is different at the top to contour with the vert top, donít know how extreme your damage is, but past where the top contour is they are the same.

Quarters and inner quarters are different. A vert will have additional structural supports through out the floor and rockers because the lack to using a roof to add stiffness to the car.
