How can Eddington-Finkelstein coordinate be transformed into Lemaitre coordinate?

I know the transformation between the Lemaitre and Schwarzschild coordinate, and also between Eddington-Finkelstein and Schwarzschild coordinate.

So I tried to find the connection between Lemaitre and E-F coordinate from that, but it is very complicated..

Can you give me the explicit formula for that?

If L1 takes LeMaitre basis to the Schwarzschild coordinate basis and L2 takes SS to E.F., then does L1L2 not take LeMaitre to EF basis ?

Formally, if μ is the Schwarzschild coordinate index, a is a LeMaitre frame index and A is an EF frame index then
[tex]
\begin{align}
v^\mu &= \Lambda^\mu_a v^a\\
v^A &= \Lambda^A_\mu v^\mu = \Lambda^A_\mu(\Lambda^\mu_a v^a) = (\Lambda^A_\mu\Lambda^\mu_a)v^a
\end{align}
[/tex]
