Default 90 sse face lift

i was thinking. i really like the front bumper on the 95 grand prixs with the small headlights. i was thinking about trying to put a grand prix bumper on the front of my 90 sse. i thin it might work maybe some body work. any thoughts?

I think you will have a very hard time not only getting it to fit the hood/fenders/whatnot but also making it flow with the rest of the car. The 95 gp has a more bubbly look to it.
Take some measurements of the hood and fenders of each to see what your in for.

The GP is narrower than a Bville. You'll have to slice the cover in half, add material in the middle, and blend it.

actually, a 1995 grand prix is only 0.2" narrower than a 1990 SSE....

You also have to buy mini-quads. Or as I used to call them (on the 91 and 95 GPs), the "maxi-blows". Hated them. I could hold a candle out the window and get more light. But the look is fantastic. I always loved the look of the front end of the GPs of those years. Had to push the car, but it looked good.
