The door trims do look good & like they belong there! A very tasteful mod, and one that makes me wanna mod my EB more and more, but damn, i've got other projects to work on.

Good stuff guys. Now who's going to do this mod & change the stock trim color's at the same time? :D

Cheers

what Benj has told me iss they fit on no prob you have to 1 bend the bar that goes to the inside door handle or you get the one for a EL/EF and replace the one in your door.s

you have to drill a hole for the bolt for the arm rest and you might have to drill a hole for the screw for the door handle.

I know benj is a busy person, so i hope what he told me i got right lol, old age creeping in

Basically, it involves drilling a couple of holes, modifying the Pwr Mirror switch loom, some patience and a dollop of common sense.

Depending on if you need manual or pwr window trims the fitting is different.

I would also recommend sourcing the door handle rods from an EF/EL. You can bend the EA-ED ones but can be a bit hit and miss.

If I find some time I might write a doco on it.

just bend the door rods - its easy to do

Match up fine. Just modify the door rods and mirror switch.

Sorry about picture, the colour looks off in it. Lighting conditions sucked.
