Nice job dude!  I am not against your conversion since when you have multiple cars it gets kind of boring.  That and mini quads look better in my opinion.  I am more partial to the earlier style that still utilizes the old valence but hey lookin good.

I can't say I would ever do this swap, but if you like it then roll with it!  It's your car and there is definitely more 94-96 fronts to be had.  FWIW, I think a clean, well maintained 94-96 GP looks good too.

Yeah, I just couldn't figure out a way to work in the one member who claimed that adding a valance to his lightbulb kept it from overheating...

Yeah looks good.  I have always liked the round fog lights of the 94-96 vintage cars.  But what i would really like to do to my TGP is store the stock bumper and get two additional front bumpers one from a TGP and one from a 94-96 and splice them together right below the beltline somehow.  Meld them together so you have the round fog lights and lower valance section of the newer cars and the 5-6 character lines and headlights/grille of the stock TGP.. sort of hard to explain and probably a lot of work but think that would be ideal.   Does the 94-96 valance/bumper provide enough air movement for the TGP?

Not enough to feed the trans cooler. I moved mine in front of the condensor

the tgp valence is special and should never be swapped for the 94-96 valence

94-96 is by far best design for looks.  TGP has more function tho.

they are all equally important: they prevent imminent transaxle ass-plosion.
