Body Panels on a Vee fit a Wee?

I have a 07 wee 650 ABS and I am wondering if the body panels of a vee will fit. I am considering buying some panels at the wrecking yard to do a custom paint job on. I dont want to do this to my stock set-up in case I sell the bike and/or my paint job doesnt come out well. Anything I need to know? Recomendations on where to buy some tank and tail body panels? I will be leaving the black nose its current color. I am not sure what color I will use but I am considering painting the bike 09 orange with a custom airbrushed graphic.

The sides under the seat will not fit at all. The side cowlings on the front of the gas tank would require a 2004 or later Vee and making an adapter for the connection to the radiator.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Thanks greywolf. Does the fact my bike is an ABS model affect anything or will any 650 work?

The plastics on ABS and non ABS 650s are interchangeable.

This is beginning to remind me of the DL800.

'09 VStrom DL650A - Sold.
'04 Suzuki Burgman 400 - The wifes
'08 FJR1300AE - Miss Chievous.
