Little clarification here?

I'm going to be diving into my foxbody head first for a restoration and I want to clear a few things up first.

First is there I difference in body parts AKA fenders because on AM there seams to be..

Second does anyone know if the eBay radiators are any good?

I'm not gonna be building a monster but I need a new one and trying to save money any ware I can because she's getting a lot of bodywork and paint.

Also as for a new shortblock, I will be keeping my heads, cam, intake. So I just need the block and rolling assembly.. Sound I get the one from LMR for 999$ or get one out of a low milage f150, bronco, explorer, or another mustang? Is there a difference in the motors when it comes down to just the block and rotating assembly?

For the fenders there is a difference..... 79-90 has a smaller fender opening so it can restrict your tire and wheel size.

You will probably get mixed reviews on the short block. I think it all depends on what you're comfortable with and where your getting the block from. The pro to the new one from LMR is just that, it's new with only break in on the internals. A used short block from the JY or others there's no knowing of how it's been maintained throughout its 50-100k life. If your not going crazy I would just go with the LMR short block IMO.
