hey all.. just wondering if tail lights from an eb will go into an ea? i know the reverse lights are on the boot garnish on an eb but is it a simple process to switch just the tail lights?

thanks

pretty sure they should fit!

and a small wiring change is all that is needed to fix the reverse light issue!

its not a easy fit but its possible, i did it to my ea. You have to make 2 big holes in teh boot for the reverse lights on the garnish and make a small bracket to hold the tail lights in as they have different mounting positiong. you also have to cut of the old plug for the ea lights and join the wires to the plug for the eb lights and run a wire up the boot for the reverse lights.

yep thats by far the best way to do it. I got eb tail lights and boot garnish for $45 delivered, but they sat in teh shed for 6 months while i figured out how the f**k to fit them.

if your keepig the ea bootlid then its pretty simple to get the eb reverse lights working. simply find the wire on the ea harness that is for the reverse lights and extend it up the boot to the eb reverse lights. run the 2 lights in series and earth it to the boot lid. Works a treat and only requires you to run 1 wire.
