eb to ef

i was wondering if you can change the front of the eb into the front of the ef and if so is it a lot of mucking around or a stright swap.

Re: eb to ef

it won't bolt up.
Although it can be done.
You will need to replace the radiator support, and fit the upper rail extensions to mount the front bar.

You will also need to change the guards and some of the wiring connectors are different.

It also makes no difference between wagon/sedan

Don't bother
The biggest hassle is the radiator. It either has to be laid back or replaced with a later model, including the welded in support panel, and laying it back usually results in overheating.
Why not just trade up to an EL/EF?

The Don..
actually to me...doing this'd have to blindfold me!
Yes your right, you need to weld in a new radiator support....piece of piss. 2 hours work if you know what your doing. are very wrong. it doesn't lay back at all. In fact, you can use the original EA/EB/ED radiator as the mount points are all the same. The only difference in these is the overflow bottles.


PS hirdy...if you want something different, then this certainly would be
