yep have to say I really am happy with the result.

Not only does it update the interior of your car, but you get less road noise from the foam backing. I used fairmont trims and EB mirrors. Can assist with wiring advice and fitting tips if needed.

Here are some pics.

Rosca from Tas has also done it - there's a thread on it somewhere - pity he's forgot to pay me for the trims...

The switches on the EF door trims are different to the the EB ones. You will have to locate the plug and attached wires that plug into the EF mirror switch and a spare plug for your car. Then using all the bits make up your own loom that plugs into the EF switch the right hand mirror and the plug in the door loom.

Use this as a guide to figure out what wires control what.

Image

The white box represents the EF Swtich and the wires are the EB loom.

Good Luck

BenJ
