Fit... probably yes. Damemorder has confirmed that SE fenders are the same as SSE/i fenders from 92-95. It'* the rest of the trim that you will need to make it all look right. All 4 doors and rear bumper cover.

My parts car has a beautiful rear bumper cover but I can't use it for my SSEi because it wouldn't follow the same body and trim lines.

Technically yes. But you'll have to have new foglight brackets, new bumper support, on top of the bumper cover. That and the trim lines won't line up.

Ryan, here'* some info on removing the door trim if you decide to replace it with a different color or change to a different trim style and match the front bumper cover you have pictured.

There are two screws located at the rear of each door. Remove the screws:


From the outside of the door, lift the trim up and out to disconnect from the upper fasteners. I did not see any difference between left and right sides


Once the upper fasteners are disconnected, pull outward on the top of the trim and you will see the bottom fasteners. Note where the two pieces seperate as indicated by the arrow. Pry the two pieces apart at that point. These fasteners are tougher than the uppers:


What you are left with are the fasteners still attached to the door:


More than likely, if you change to a different trim level, the fasteners will have to be changed as well. They are removed by moving the locking tab in the direction of the yellow arrow and pulling upward. The bottoms remove in a similar fashion:


These are the trim fasteners:


and this is what the bare door looks like:


Good luck and let me know if you need any more help.
