BA door handle on an EL.

I am assuming that the hole left by the BA handles would be smaller than the BA handles and therefore they would only need to be cut bigger.

How would you mount the handles?
Would the opening mechanism be affected.
Would the El key barrels be able to fit in the BA handle?
Would the key barrel line up?
Has anyone done it before?
Where would be the best place to get a set of 4 BA handles?
Any comments?

the EL handles are kind of more "on" the outer of the door where the AU/BA handles are "in" the door. you may have issues getting them to actually sit in place with out modding the shape of the door skin drastically

I’m not sure ask someone who has a BA here on the forum to measure the dimensions and then compare with yours.

Hmmm, I think the EF/EL interior door handles are the best of any of the Falcons myself.

Did they move their window winder or is that standard?

If they moved it, that's pretty cool.

thought you woulda noticed the power window switch... (a bit of a giveaway... :lol: )

ba inner door handle looks outa place and doesnt suit.. i love the style of the Fairmont ghia and Fairlane EF/EL chrome door handles.. (except for how the housing is prone to cracking.. :roll:
