Actually, you can cut the section of the 931 header panel out that has the four vents in it (so you have a long rectangular piece), then cut the same sort of rectangle in the 951 header panel and graft that piece in there. You'll have to do a little finish work to make it look correct, but then the vents, the curves of the openings, and the vent supports will be correct-looking. There was a guy on another forum that did this and it looked good.
Which is exactly what I plan on doing when I finally get around to repairing my current header panel (has a dent in it from a parking lot incident when the PO had it parked somewhere). I figure that since I'll have to have the header panel off the car and re-painted anyway I might as well have someone graft the 931 vents into it as well.
Shifting is an art. Learn it, love it, live it.
