    99 Front bumper with pop-up headlights?

    I'm debating on whether to put my front bumper back to the stock one (previous owner has some shitty fast-n-furious bumper on it) or put a '99 front on it. I love that '99 look, but I like my pop-up headlights ('93). I want to keep them.

    Question is, can the '99 front bumper go on while keeping the pop-ups? If no, then I'll go to the stock front probably. To save anyone the trouble, I know with the right amount of money and work, it probably could... I'm just wondering how much money/effort to keep the pop-ups with the '99 front. Thanks!

    I have been looking at that bumper for years, I can't decide if I want to go that route or just cut open a bigger mouth in the 1st gen bumper for my big ass fmic.

    if you like it, go with it. some people don't like that bumper because of the turns.

    imho, i don't think the 99 look works on a 1g 3kgt. it doesn't match the rest of the car.

    I think it would look good if you get 2G sideskirts, 2G rear bumper and an aftermarket hood to replace the blisters. All the lines of the car will go together a lot more.

    I personally like the 99 bumper with the pop ups... My wife can't stand the 99 look unless its the real deal. She says the 99 conversions are over rated and played out..(grinch)lol.
