Differences between 88-89 vs 90-81 and jdm vs usdm vs...?
« on: October 25, 2012, 09:29:02 am »
Hey guys, as I'm migrating from a Canadian built usdm 91 si and focusing on my jdm built usdm 88 std, I'm noticing a lot of little differenc es in the cars.

I'm hoping this will be a good place we can keep a list of the things that are different and similar between the models.
If you've noted something, please add to this list.

For starters:

The 88-89 doors are different .  They can be put on a modded 90-91 chassis though.
The 88-89 bumpers and side moldings are different .  They have a channel all the way around. 
The 88-89 front bumper is also 4" shorter, making the overall length of the vehicle shorter.
It also has a rectangul ar grill opening whereas the 90-91 has a trapezoid al grill opening.
The bumper and corner lights appear to be different as well.
The tail lights are also different .  With the amber in the 90-91 bring darker and the reverse lights looking different also.

Ex:

Grey = 88 / Black = 91

If you've ever got the opportuni ty to document the differenc e between the floor pans/seat brackets between the two (with pics if possible), that would be appreciat ed.

I know that acquiring the right seat brackets for the chassis can be a challenge .
