Will the guards, bonnet, bumper bar and lights etc from an EF-EL bolt on to an EB? or is there more involved.

yeah they will fit, but you will also need a radiator support panel + bonnet latch from a EF or EL as well, and possibly the EF EL radiator as well

a bit of work, but all bolt on

So if I had access to a complete car I should be able to source all the bits then.

yeah, not quite sure how it would look though.

I think the EF GLi front would suit the EB rear the most

true..

but then it defeats the purpose of being modded or unique..

i wanted to see a eb with a nc fairlane front (ive seen a station wagon)..
or a nc fairlane with a ed xr6 front..

then some would say why put a el or au motor in a ea??
why??? because i can!!
well i guess its to be different ..

Actually it isn't all bolt on, the radiator support is welded on plus you also need to use the skirts aswell so not an easy job for the every day back yarder.
