You can use all of the body parts, lights, bumper and hood from the 93 - not sure about the radiator, it may be different on a 90.

You can't use any parts from the 96.

That's not strictly true.... There are various parts from a '96 that may fit a '90, such as the wheels, certain suspension parts (front spring pans, spring packers, upper ball joints), the differential and halfshafts, the thermostat cover, possibly the engine coolant temperature sensor, the cruise control actuator, the windshield wiper arm, parts of the J-gate, and other bits and pieces. But it would take a lot of research to figure out what to grab off of the '96. The '93 is a much better bet!

Cheers,

Don

I should have mentioned earlier that if the interior color of the '96 is the same as your car, you should grab the cupholder/arm rest, which will fit your '90 just fine.

Cheers,

Don

For sure Don, but our OP was only looking for
a fender, hood, front defense and radiator, frot lights roght and left
so of course none of these bits from the '96 would fit!

Hi Larry,

I interpreted the OP's question, "....can i use any of the parts from the 96 for my car?" to be more general, beyond his immediate needs.

I also interpreted your response, "You can't use any parts from the 96," to be a general statement to the effect that nothing on the '96 would fit a '90.

Communication is a funny thing, especially when it's based entirely on text with no human visual or vocal cues!

Cheers,

Don
