As the title says, if I get an EP3 tailgate will I be able to just attach my trim to it? I know the actual tailgate fits its just the trim I dont know about.

 

Thanks

The trim should fit, but be aware that the window is different in an EP3 - To accommodate the extra 2 bolts for the larger spoiler. You would also need an EP3 spoiler/EP3 Mugen wing to cover them (If you don't already)

 

Also good to see another Lincolnshire member! :)

Yeh the reason I was looking at a tailgate swap was to have the EP3 spoiler fit properly without modification. I also realised after I posted that the EP2 trim will have the brake light section.

 

:D only just got my EP2 Sport last week. Yeh not really noticed any active Lincolnshire members yet but I havnt been registered long. :)

Good idea, saves a bit of faffing around. Yes the EP2 does have that brakelight trim bit, so you could leave as is or change for an EP3 section. Should be easy to find on eBay - Would recommend Integrastella on eBay there. Breaks Honda's and not to far away from Lincolnshire, just south of Boston. Might be able to get you a tailgate to ;)

 

Will keep an eye out for you, travel to Lincoln a fair bit. What colour? Silver EP3 here.

Mine is Satin Silver. Ive seen their store before but always seem to be priced higher than other breakers but will keep my eye out.

As the others said, it should fit even if you have to swap the upper trim for one off an EP3.

I've just bought an EP3 boot for my EP2 that I'll be putting the EP2 trim on soon, I can let you know if it works if you'd like :)

Hey Dan sorry didnt reply I got it fitted an EP3 spoiler and had it trimmed at work so no faffing with a new boot. May try and get the top boot trim where the brake light would usually be from an EP3 boot though. Cheers anyway

Hey dude, no worries and glad you got it sorted! :)

Yeah I might find the trim off an ep3 at some point since it'll look better but the ep2 top trim fits and the spoiler covers most of it from the outside!
