Default Re: 1998 SL1 rear bumper skin compatibility with other models?

Same with the door handles, though I don't think 1st gen SC1's got body color door handles like they did bumpers.

For a '98 you need a '96-'99 sedan (pretty sure wagons are too different to work while there's no chance a coupe will fit without major work).

Most body parts from a Wagon work on Sedans and vice-versa, they only changed behind the rear doors and the roof for a given generation.
Ok so an SL2, '96-'99, if it's got a body-color rear bumper cover it'll fit? Sounds like the simplest thing for me will be to make do with another grey plastic one

Yup, I had a '91 manual SC2 with pop-up lights, and all bumpers and door handles were painted body color. That was a fun handling car with a revvy little motor. Miss that one compared to this SL1, boy, way different motor, everything, leather seats, sr, pw, pdl, better gear ratios...!
