My 90 Vette is unusual in the fact that it has square tailights.L-98.Thin black moulding.
So now that the bumper cover is FUBAR,I am wondering if the 91 bumper will fit right up to my 90 quarter panels.I kind of fig that the previous owner got a ZR-1 lookalike from Ecklers or what not,but just wanted to know if 91 and 90 swap will work.
BTW,it's a fiberglass cover.

none right now :(
You will have two problems... The black molding won't be on the 91's bumper... The wide body molding is molded in as a part of the newer style bumpers. Also, the third brake light on your car is mounted above the glass, and on '91-'96, it is in the bumper... that means you will have two, (plus no wiring for the one in the bumper)... I am 99% sure the mounting locations etc. are the same though, so it will bolt up... honestly, in my opinion, you are better off buying the same one from ecklers..
