After doing some research I've found that the Ef and El tickford bodykits are different .
I have a Ef side skirts and door moulds, I like the el better. I have a el front lip as I was told. I think my rear bar is el as it's a bit bulky ( not sure yet)

I was thinking I could make some el door moulds , but are they the same width as the Ef ones? If there not I could always extend the strip on the skirt that the mould Sits next to.

Anyone with a el ticky kit could they please take some measurements and close up pics of the el door mould ?

Only thing is if I have a Ef rear lip it might look a bit weird with the el door moulds.

Cheers

the ef are small in lenght and heights compared to the el

EF have a less beefier look to the EL.

Front lip is pretty much the same except for the corners at the wheel arch. Not sure if this will make any sense, but the EF has a steep finishing slope going from the arch to the bottom of the lip...where as the EL has a more gentle smooth slope to the bottom of the lip.

The side skirt and door moulds are pretty obvious. EF have a smaller door mould, slightly smaller in height and much smaller in length with side skirts to match the profile. EL door moulds are basically a stretched version of the EF.

Rear is beefier on the EL. The EL have the slope sitting a little higher to match the sideskirt/door mould and then gently angle down to the bottom of the skirt. EF have a steeper angle and also sits lower to match up with the door mould/sideskirt.

hope that made some sort of sense...but I guess pictures would tell a thousand words.

Thanks for the info. I can tell the difference between them. I just want the el rear bar as it looks better. I'm going to make some el door moulds. Would it be possible to turn a Ef rear lip into a el one ??

On second thought, I'm going to have go at modding my Ef rear lip into a el. So it's only the triangles that are bigger? Or is it also the back of the lip? As it looks bigger around the back.

Rear lip might be a little fatter along the back, but not by much, biggest difference would be the triangle bit.

I had a look at My Ef rear lip and compared it to a pic of a el rear lip. At the back they are the same but on the sides they are different , on the el the bulgey rear extends around the sides and meets the triangle , but on the Ef it stops just before the bendin the lip.
I'm sure I could continue it around with some foam and fiberglass over it.

And also make my door triangles bigger.
