Question...

I recently hit a large animal on the highway and the front bumper cover needs replaced...

I alwyas prefered the look of the 93/94 SE-R bumper with the more aggressive built in lower air-dam. According to my body shop, their computer shows the same part # for the 91-94 SE-R, but we all know that cannot be correct.

Being I am replacing the entire bumper cover with a totally new one, I am thinking of placing the 93/94 on there instead.

Does anyone know for a fact that this can be done? I will add I am keeping the original grille (liked my glass headlamp units and grille better than the 93/94, besides, mine are not damaged).

It seems to me it can be done...

I think the 93 SE-R bumper will look great...

Thanks for any input...

Yea easy, direct bolt up. They only changed the grill/headlight/under headlight bar between 92 and 93. The mounting points as far as I have ever heard are the same. Call up courtsey see what they price for one, and get their part number. Do checking make sure you get a 93/94 if the part numbers are the same

I had the same idea about putting a '93-94 front fascia on my '92 SE-R. I was quoted a price of $117.00 at my local Nissan Dealership.

Is that all that fascias go for? I rear-ended someone in my NX last December, and now the hood doesn't line up with the nose quite right and my air dam's a bit cracked. Since the damage isn't bad, I didn't want to go through insurance and have my premiums go up, but my car's just barely damaged and it bugs me. Please let me know how you make out...

Okay here we go...

Got the insurance check today and went to the body shop today to re-do estimate to include some custom work to go with this re-do.

The front bumper cover is the same price for all years of the Classic SE-R. I am paying $179.28. But that includes being painted! Now, the total for everything
including the labor includes this:


*A/C condenser and its brace straigtened out and painted.

*New driving lamp lenses and wiring harnesses

*New 93/94 BUMPER COVER


Rocker Panel side-sills painted body color

Side View Mirrors painted body color

Grille and lower tie bar (strip under grille/headlamps) repainted body color

Add in all paint, labor and disposal for the above comes to $888.83. Not bad. She will be practically brand new all over again! With my insurance having only a $100 deductible, only $388 is out of my pocket (do to the custom work).

When done I will post a new pic on my web site (link is in my signature) Work will begin in two weeks (going on a long weekend this weekend, could not fit repair in my schedule)

Thanks for all your input and help

* The work due to animal incident damage alone was $605. Including the new 93/94 bumper cover. Custom work alone is $283.

I am very interested in how much this amounts to. Did you go to a higher end garage? The pricing sounds pretty reasonable. Once I move out of the city, and away from the "Boston Bump", I will consider getting new bumpers and some paint touch-ups. Please keep us posted.

I went to the best shop in my area. They own their own motorcycle dealership and also own their own custom show cars along with this pro-auto body shop. These people are motor enthusiasts to the core. They have a collection of show bikes, cars and pick-ups. They own a show Viper and Prowler just to name a couple along with a collection of classic muscle cars. Their work is amazing and high quality. Evidently they put alot of pride in their work. I am confident I will get nothing less than the best.

I guess they almost have to be with all their involvement...

I will keep you posted.
