Question 90 to 92 bumper conversion

What up I have a 90 accord coupe and I want to put a 92 bumper on but it's giving me a problem it won't fit right on... Any ideas on what to do? Thanks

I'm assuming you've wasted none of your precious time to search the forum and find out if anyone else has run into this issue. Worry no more. I'm here to make sure that you don't have to inconvenience yourself by doing that.

The '92-'93 bumper is shaped differently than the '90-'91 front bumper. The '92-'93 headlights have an angular shape to the front of them that causes them to stick out about 1/2-3/4" further along the edge where they meet the bumper. The grille is shaped the same as well. So, in order to fit the bumper and have it look correct you'll need the '92-'93 headlights and corner lenses and the grill to complement your bumper.

I hope it didn't take you too long to read all of that. I know you have important things to get back to.

lol I was thinking of doing the same thing with my cb7. I have a 93 lx and I was digging the 9091 front end but I decided to keep mine instead. Just got the oem front lip for it. Gonna put it on soon.

the lights isn't the problem its the support. The 92 support is smaller than the 90 support width wise

I know from my 92/93 front end swap that I had sucess.. Though I only got the bumper cover and slid that over my 91 brace then threw a bunch of screws into it.. It never did look exactly right on there because I retained the 90/91 lights grill and corner lights but they sort of tucked in underneath and I shoved the grille behind the bumper.

Yeah hitting the search button brings up these topics that people have asked and they can be useful even if you comment on one and bring it back at least some of the community will recognize you attempted the search button

What part of the support? IRRC they are the same. I have done many swaps and in the process of doing another. Then again you could just have one that is messed up too.

The main fiberglass support is smaller. When I swapped from a 90-91 to a 92-93, I first tried to do it with the 90-91 bumper support; which didn't work. I spent about an hour or two trying to put the bumper onto the fiberglass bumper support. The bumper support was too tall and was shaped differently. I had to use a 92-93 bumper support to put a 92-93 bumper on my car; you might be able to get away with cutting it to fit.

At least, this is what I had to do on my car. It might have been different for others.
