yeah it is but you will have to cut and weld the section of metal around the handles to get a clean fit

yeah, the ef/el door handles are a curved slanted handle where as the ea-ed handles are more square. i may be wrong, the holes cut may be the same... thinking back i think striker put ef/el handles on his eb... ill sdend him a message now

I don't think the ef/el door handles would suit an ea/eb/ed coz the cars got more of a square-like look, where as the ef/el door handles have a more curvey look.

But thats just my opinion

i think they look great and are basically a straight bolt on fit. i would go for the EL passanger side as it has no key hole in it.
