If they haven't changed up to 93, the answer is yes.

I damaged mine after a car in front of me ran over some construction lumber, and the pieces cracked my front impact strip. The strips (front and back ) can be ordered seperately, and as such, can be removed.

Installation is a snap, but de-installing may require removal of the bumpers to gain access to the fasteners on the inside. Since I was replacing mine, I simply grabbed the loose end and ripped it off in a whiplike fashion!

Note that if you are removing the front strip, don't forget to disconnect the outside temp sensor first!

Make sure the body shop uses some sort of "flex" agent in the paint so that the paint can expand and shrink as the strip will. Otherwise, you will end up where you started...
