Just confirm that your trying to fit the Lancer front bar to an EL?
It'll scertainly be something different.

I guess you can give it a shot...if it isn't long enough, just cut it in half and make pieces out of fibreglass to extend it to make it fit.

The Lancer bar has potential.

Not "potential" as in a mature looking 15yo, moreso "potential" in the case of a chemical burns victim making a full recovery after countless skin grafts & plastic surgery to rival Michael Jackson's.

A mate here has a EA with a wrx front bar. Looks like a bit of an abortion though its an improvement compared to the standard.

If the WRX bar didnt stick out the front so far it would look nicer.
