Default Fitting a front bumper from a 92 to a 90 Integra

Guys, so I wrecked my teg and bought a parts car from a salvage yard but turns out its a 92 rather than a 90 and I didn't realize till I got it home and was rebuilding that the bumpers don't match. Turns out they changed the style in 92 such that the bumper bolt holes do not line up! The bumper is also not as deep in the frame so the bolts are not long enough, that or the frame of the car front clip extends out further on the 92 so the bumper I have is just on by some rebar wire for now till I can figure out how to bolt it up properly. Any help with this would be much appreciated!

Default Re: Fitting a front bumper from a 92 to a 90 Integra

So my current solution to this problem is to simply drill out new holes in the plastic of this 92 bumper to align the bolt holes of my front clip and then buy some longer bolts to fit it. The problem I have with this is the bumper does not rest on the frame properly now and probably isn't the best for taking an impact should one occur again in the future. The bumper is currently held up with rebar wire on top, 4 screws, 2 on either front fender and 2 bolts on the underside of the bumper which predominantly holds the plastic part of the bumper for keeping mud a dirt out of the engine compartment. SO basically the bumper is held on by rebar wire for the most part right now.

The turn signal lights in the 92 bumper were changed from 90 to 92 such that these lights are wider and that's what screwed up the alignment of the bumper bolt holes now.
