Will fit, will just need to make custom mounting inside the door, and a custom opening rod thing... It is alotta messing around... But will make exterior look neater..

If you go though BenJ's Wagon thread, He has done one door in there...

I may even finish it one day.

LOL

I used a donor handle section cut out of an AU door, and had it welded into the E Series Door. Then I had to modify the AU handle as the E Series glass hit the back of the handle mechanism, customise the link between the AU Handle and the lock, and I don't think a lock can be used on the drivers door as it will foul on the glass.

Cheers
