    Honda part numbers for the door skins are the same on all of them - i think that just the molding itself is different

    The window of the door mounted seatbelt is about 1" narrower than the window of the piller mounted doors. This is because the back of the door frame is wider to fit in more support for the seatbelt mechanism.

    the canada built hondas had the seatbelts on the pillar, the one built for american specs have them on the door. i believe this is true for all 88-91 models, my 89 has them on the pillar and was built to canada specs. it has the sticker on the radiator support

    well from what i can tell the doors are almost the same other than seatbelt, door impact bars and the molding is a little different, but for years i have thought the doors on the 90-91 was a little shorter from bottom to top, but i cant find info on that, but im confused because i didnt think that for years for no reason. i dont think anyhow lol.

    The 88 Si had pillar mounted belts. If I were you, I'd just wait it out and get the correct door.
