Looks nice. I have a question though, why did you buy 90/91 corner lights?

why not? are the 88/89 better?
Don't do it, the 90/91 won't work with 88/89's. 88/89 have corner lights that screw in at the corner of the lights outside while 90/91's corner lights insert and screw in under the hood.

90/91

88/89 see where the screws go in?

Your car has this.^ I think you might actually have an 88/89 vs a 90/91 judging by your tails, corner lights and rear bumper.

I was wondering what happened to your build. Glad you decided to hang on to the rex man, big fan or your rims! Look forward to more pictures. :) :)b

Not better but as Nar already said they won't fit your car. That's interesting your car is titled as a 1990 but maybe some stuff is just swapped around, who knows

The corner lights will fit man, you just need to get:

*90/91 headlight buckets (the 90/91 corners have a screw that attaches to the buckets vs. the 88/89 do not and they slide in)

*remove the clips that the screw bites into on the fenders (2 per side) and replace with clips that allow the new corners to slide in (I got mine for like $8 shipped on her or they are like $20 shipped new from Honda)

Or you can go on eBay and get the correct ones (they aren't too pricey)...Are you sure the bumper lights are correct for your car too? As the 90-91 lights are wider.

I changed my 88 to the 90/91 corners as I like them alot better and I did a new EDM/SiR front end so it matches now. Btw :)b so far, I like the rims alot! I am looking to sell my 17's and get some similar to yours!

the car looks like a 90, but the front and rear appear to have parts from another car (88-89).
can't really tell on the front bumper cover, but both do fit. you will want older style corner lights to make it easy, and the newer bumper lights are fine if you have the newer bumper.
