EXT: 90-91 DIY "G-SQUARE" usable with 92-93 lights

EXT: 90-91 DIY "G-SQUARE" usable with 92-93 lights


This DIY is for people who have 92-93 HeadLights with 90-91 Grill and want to make it look more flush.

For this DIY I use a OEM 90-91 Grill, make it look like a G-SQUARE grill and also make it more more flush with 92-93 headlights.

Stuff needed:

OEM 90-91 Grill
Something to cut with
Screw Gun
92-93 headLights, (I dont know what this grill would look like with 90-91 headlights)

*****NOTE IM BORROWING SOME STEPS FROM THIS DIY http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthre...ght=grill*****

STEP 1:Get 90-91 grille, flip over and unscrew it all:


STEP 2:
Once its a part cut where I mark it RED:
A small saw will work just fine.

Step 3:
Will look like this after cut:
Won't need the bottom part.

STEP 5:
Flip the grille and install it upside down. See in the picture how the hole where the "H" used to be is connected to the other part if the grill.
Start from the middle and screw it on.
***See pic****

***See how the part of the grille where the hole for the "H" used to be is hidden and makes the Grill flush with no hole.*****


STEP 6: Now that you have it centered use the screw gun and screw it with one more screw on each side. I used drywall screw. Dont screw them in too far in or it will break on through to the otherside. So just screw it on enough that it holds up ***See pics****



FINAL PICS:

90-91 GRILL WITH 92-93 HEADLIGHTS:


See the gap is smaller almost looks like it fits








Painted:

Thanks for looking!

If you have any questions or if something isnt clearly written let me know. I tried typing it as clearly as possible.

What I mainly did on this DIY was hide the gaping hole where the "H" was to make it look smooth and make a 90-91 grill usable with 92-93 headlights.

An optional step could be putting Wire mesh in the middle

For this to sit flush, does the grill have to be flipped upside down? The grill I have already has the guts removed and the spot where the H was filled in. It just needs sanded and painted. Got the day off, don't have anything going, I may grab some sandpaper and some frost white spray paint and do this, soon.

I'll give that a shot. I installed mine, doesn't look bad, aside from needing a sanding and white paint. I noticed that when I close the hood, something on the hood pushes down on the top part of the grill... I'll double check it here shortly and possibly take some pics. I want to get it fine tuned fitment wise before I paint it. Make sure I want to keep it on the car.

Just snapped this pic. Not sure if I'm going to keep it. I think once I get it painted, that may change my mind.



Not sure why it pushes down on the top, also, I've yet to turn the grill upside down, hopefully that'll help. I'll give that a shot maybe today or tomorrow.
