Question 91 "zenki" bumper?

Recently came across a zenki bumper and need some details before I make a decision. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Are there any fitment issues with these bumpers on USDM cars(fenders, grille, etc.)?
Do they fit on the USDM '93 crash-bar?
Will my '93 headlights/turn signals fit properly or will there be a gap?
Are these just normal 90-91 bumpers with different fogs or actually "JDM"?

Those look like normal 90-91 bumpers w/ fogs to me.

The dark colored one (black?) is a JDM bumper. The silver looks to be, but the clarity of photos doesn't lend itself to the license plate area enough to confirm. JDM bumpers have a recess for the license plate the US bumpers don't use.

The silver one definitely has JDM fogs. The USDM fogs are flat.

The 92-93 headlights are more curved and will not fit as well as 90-91 headlamps would fit. It's doable, but will look "off". I used to run a 92-93 junk bumper in the winter and store my stock front bumper with lip / fogs and things always looked a little funky with the 90-91 headlamps.

If you're going to convert, you might as well do the whole deal. The 90-91 JDM one piece headlamps used to be cheaper than their 92-93 counterparts if you wend down that road, but I don't know if that's still the case as it's been over 10 years since I've been into buying / selling the parts.

Thanks for clearing that up!

This is exactly the information I was looking for. So bumpers with recessed license plate frames are true JDM bumpers then. Thanks!
