shouldnt be to hard if youve already put the door looms in and plugged the lights into the loom. you'll just need to run a wire from a foot well light to a wire in each door (only the positive i assume as itl probably allready have a negative wired in) they wont be working now because id assume the fairmont ghia uses a differend H loom to the fairmont.

also why are you putting in a fairlane cluster it should be the same as the fairmont, they both have individual door ajar lights? and volts and oil pressure... if its just different fonts etc you shouldnt need any wiring changes(apart from the odo)

Cheers Cam

personally what i did is got the extra pins out the the floor loom side from a fairlane, soldered on extenstions you'll need 2 or 3 wires comeing from the door. actuall you should only need 2 bu you may have to hack the door loom as I believe he have earts runing ut out.

for the light i believe their negative witching so i believe you'll need to tap into the negtive wire off the footwell courtesy lights., and I believe the positve feed will already be jumped of something else inthe door loom.
and you'll need to tap the rear door sensor in to an earth wire, and just send the other one up to the cluster. power windows will give you an earth inside the door I think.

But get the multi meter out and check everything as you go, as this isn't all how i did it it, as I picked up a few ideas well doing it.
