Hi, are you referring to just the door spears?

If so they should have some metal tabs on the back that go through the door trim and get bent over to hold them in place.

Cheers
BenJ

The factory door handle inserts do have a recess built into them for the wood to sit into.

I do have a set of ED Ghia door trims with the woodgrain I would be happy to part with for the right price.

Cheers
BenJ

i believe the doortrims are different. my old man bought a set to put in his partners EB Ghia but they didn't look like an easy fit, so eBay they went

Nope, EB2 and ED Fairmont Velour trims use the same material. The only difference with the Ghia is the addition of the woodgrain strip.

And wagons and sedans use the same door trims on the rear doors.

Cheers
