EH bumper? (See attached photo)

Hey All,
Could someone take a look at the photo and tell me if this is an EH or EJ rear bumper?
I think it might be EJ based on the brackets on each end.
Are EH & EJ rear bumpers interchangeable?

EH and EJ rear bumpers are different. The centre piece is interchangeable but the ends are not. The picture looks like an EJ bumper.

As Quick 64 mentioned that one looks like it has EJ bracket. The EH rear bar is different to EJ rear bar in the ends as we see here, and the centre section length is about 37mm?? different. So complete bars are different, the front bars however are the same as is commercial rear bumperettes.

the one shown is an EJ bumper, the EH only had 1 bolt through the corner piece, they interchange if you have the corresponding bracket.
The EH bracket is more a z shape to suit the single bolt opposed to the double bolt and bracket you have circled

I don't think they are interchangeable.
The EJ end sections are shorter than EH, just the same as an EJ rear beaver is shorter than an EH rear beaver.
On and EJ the rear quarter panel curves back in under the tail light. On a EH it almost vertical.

Old is good.

I think the complete bars are interchangeable, in fact im sure they are as i once had an EJ rear bar or at least the end sections on an EH sedan, and thats how i found out about them being different, as some one pointed it out to me,

the end sections of the rear bars only differ in the bolt holes, the EJ centre rear is different length to EH rear centre.

Fair enough.
If the outer sections are the same length does that mean EJ rear brackets are different to EH?
To me, the outer section inner ends must be closer to the centre of the car, which means that the bracket must be longer to reach where it bolts to the ends of the shorter EJ inner section. Hope that makes sense.
