Err, putting an NF rearend on an EA?
It would be a pretty large-ish job lol
Cheaper and easier to buy an NF and put an EA front on it :P

still be a huge job. imho it wouldnt be worth it unless you did the front aswell. and then the cost would be h-u-g-e, as steady said, your better off sourcing an nf/nl

could be done if you did the work your self, roof profiles a slightly different, and then the NF rear also has a provision for a extra rear 1/4 window, which the EA dosne't, so C pillar mods are required.

the rear 1/4 panels can be unpicked and cut like this:

to get the boot and bar to fit you would have to change the qtr panels and boot floor.

maybe if you get a rear cut from a car that is wrecked in the front might make it easy (easier)

cant really see the point though. What are you trying to achieve by doing this?

saves a hell of a lot of money in buying a new limo, at a guess id say not too many people would want to be seen in an early 90's limo, the moderner the better

hey guys, thanks for all the info. I have sourced a wreck already and will do a practice run on a old ea first. The reason i am doing it is the later model value of the look of the limo. Front end is just bolt on stuff so easy as but the back end is the hard bit. Will post some photos up of my work as i go .
