Beginner Forum Rules - EVERYBODY read! (old and new members alike!)

Beginners start here. Once you have 30 worthwhile posts (off topic doesn't count) you may post outside of the Beginner forums. Any "whoring" (posting simply to raise your post count) will return your count to 0, or result in a ban.

These are the rules. Read them. Live by them.

1) Absolutely NO flaming! "Flaming" is an outright attack on a member. ALL questions are encouraged to be asked here, no matter how basic. Members with over 30 posts will be subject to a ONE WEEK ban if caught flaming in this forum (and yes, moderators can read deleted posts). Members with under 30 posts will be subject to a ONE DAY ban.

2) Use appropriate language. Racial or sexual slurs will not be tolerated. A ban will be issued at the discretion of the staff.

3) No items may be sold in the Beginner forums. Any "for sale" threads will be deleted.

4) Temporarily banned members will be PERMANTLY banned if they are found posting on another account.

The rules can and will be added to. Any updates will be marked in the title.

    91 "zenki" bumper?

    Recently came across a zenki bumper and need some details before I make a decision. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

    Are there any fitment issues with these bumpers on USDM cars(fenders, grille, etc.)?
    Do they fit on the USDM '93 crash-bar?
    Will my '93 headlights/turn signals fit properly or will there be a gap?
    Are these just normal 90-91 bumpers with different fogs or actually "JDM"?

    Those look like normal 90-91 bumpers w/ fogs to me.

    My '92 LX build. Bought Novemeber 2019.

      The dark colored one (black?) is a JDM bumper. The silver looks to be, but the clarity of photos doesn't lend itself to the license plate area enough to confirm. JDM bumpers have a recess for the license plate the US bumpers don't use.

      The silver one definitely has JDM fogs. The USDM fogs are flat.

      The 92-93 headlights are more curved and will not fit as well as 90-91 headlamps would fit. It's doable, but will look "off". I used to run a 92-93 junk bumper in the winter and store my stock front bumper with lip / fogs and things always looked a little funky with the 90-91 headlamps.

      If you're going to convert, you might as well do the whole deal. The 90-91 JDM one piece headlamps used to be cheaper than their 92-93 counterparts if you wend down that road, but I don't know if that's still the case as it's been over 10 years since I've been into buying / selling the parts.


        Thanks for clearing that up!

        This is exactly the information I was looking for. So bumpers with recessed license plate frames are true JDM bumpers then. Thanks!
