Well the door trims are 99% the same.

IIRC the rear door trims differ slightly with the 2 fastening screws adjacent to the door hinges. The GLI/futura trims (without the proper armrest) have the screws parallel to the door skin, the armrest trims have them at 90deg.
Since you're going from fairmont to fairlane, they'll be the same, otherwise those two screws can be lightly glued in place to look like screws are there - the trim won't flex or anything.

I hope I'm making sense.
