i think rs and ss are the same,but standard is different due to hideaway lights and such.check with D & R Classic,Ricks,or Paddock.

The headlights on RS' have mounting points on the fenders. I also know the holes for the fender badges are different on rs and ss fenders. I don't know if the factory put rs fenders on SS' or not. I can tell you that there have been many posts on this site about converting non-rs cars to rs. Use the search function, you will find some good information!

there are differences in the rs fender vs. the standard fender. (search archives). i don't think there are any diffs in weather the car is an ss or not, they just added the badges. it just depends on if you have a standard ss vs. a rs/ss.

Standard fenders and SS fenders are the same the only difference with the RS fenders is that there are a couple extra tabs for mounting the hideway headlights. You can use the RS fenders on a non RS car you just have to cut the tabs out to allow for the regular grille to fit.
