They do fit however u have to make up some spacers cause the bolt holes on the ED bonnet are "further away"

cars are a lethal weapon,your not invinsible when you get into one,and no matter how much skill you think you have,you are never in control you are always on the edge of death it may not happen today but if you keep driving like you do,you too will end up dead!

Never liked the EA style grill with an EB/ED bonnet, looks kinda, empty? Dunno, but mine is staying.

Re: Do ED grills fit to EBs?

I must admit the ED grille is pretty uninspiring to some. However, the Fairmont (chrome surround) looks pretty neat. I personally prefer the ED bonnet, but I am pretty biassed! Then again, maybe it's because I painted mine body colour instead of the shitty factory grey. It looks a million times better and makes the front look much more modern.
