It's not exactly like a G-Square, but it more resembles one than a 92-93 grill that's been modded. It should fit a 92-93, but it'll sit back a bit more than the 92-93 grill because the headlights on the 90-91 are not angled......but the 92-93's are. You could use a 90-91 bumper cover to get the right look, but then the 92-93 headlights would hang over the bumper.

There are some members with 92-93 bumpers on 90-91's, and visa versa. You could search to find them......

lol, I'm white you jackass..... I'll admit, the pics aren't perfect but if you can't follow simple instructions you don't have a chance of completing a decent grill yourself let alone anything else remotely involved.

Go BUY one flyboy, see if I give a fuck. That requires a whole lot of imagination.....

and damn...i dunno if i should laugh at 22z for being "ill-knowledged" or maroon for his wit

Dude, the grills look awesome. I dont know alot about bondo/filler, etc.(BTW is that bondo or f.glass?) Either way, i know nothing about using them, but im sure i can be taught or read instructions on the box But one day, or in my sparetime, ima do this. And when i do, ill post pics and props for the DIY.

I used all JB Weld to mold in a piece of plastic for the bottom, because Bondo Cracks.

And after some sanding:



And the final, before adding mesh grill:

note that I uesd JB WELD for the 2nd grill i made, the first one i used Bondo and it cracked and started breaking, not only in the middle but in the corners also.
So, I got another grill and used all JB WELD, and I can tell a huge difference in the strength of it. Just take your time and you will be fooling people with its clean looks before ya know it

also the mesh I used can be purchased at Home Depot for appox. $1.50 its Gutter Guard Mesh Grill
