You have got the centre console as well. That means you can wire in the rear courtesy light - straight swap of looms in the centre console. Front doors should be fine, rear ones would need to be altered for power windows and different door handle. Please post pictures when you are finished. What a bargain you got!

Was the interior off the shelf?, or is it straight out of a Fairmont in the yard.
The reason I ask is that I've only seen two EF Fairmonts in the yard - I suspect your interior is from the White EF in the yard - can't remember if EF/EL Fairmont greys are the same or not. I suspect not.

For the rear power windows, just change the looms in the rear doors and add two wires between the main power window switch connector and the rear doors. The central locking motors and rear power window looms all click in together.

Then there is the mounting of the rear power windows............ :lol:
