pretty sure that the EA bootlid doesn't have the cutouts to clear the bulb holders for the EB reverse lights. Apparently you can "modify" them to fit. Some sort of butchering of the globe holders is required.

Re: eb tail lights and boot garnish into ea

G'day,
i have an EB...mum has an EA, i can check for sure.
But it also depends on which EB garnish you plan to use. I am a panel beater..by trade and job, and have cross fit plent of bootlids, and NEVER come across a fitment issue.

If you do, you do not need to butcher the globe holders as suggested, but merely trim some of the frame from your bootlid...but i would be VERY surprised if you had to.

As for the tail-lights, bolt in! The inner panels do differ, but are irrelevant to light fitment.

Cheers
Jas
