a mate has recommended just using expandable foam stuff and taping of the front then sand it back and ill see how spraying it looks... i can cut the plastic away from behind the material and fold the material over the plastic to get a nice edge...

never got around to playing with the center console but here is some progress...
made some speaker surrounds today... so this is pretty much one finished door trim (minus the extra power window switch...)

I commend your efforts fourL6, that was quite a task you set yourself! What happened to the top half of the door near the a-pillar though? In previous pictures it wasn't cut off? Would have looked more flush but nevertheless still a top effort mate! Will be interested to see how the BA centre console fits if you go ahead.

that part stuck out that far it just about covered the air vents so i cut it off :)...

have now done both front doors...

Any idea how different the mounting points etc. are for the BA handbrake?
this is a pic of a AU one... couldnt find a BA one :(

Hey mate, sounds like afun project.

The handbrake has 3 bolts running horizontally through the bracket. It looks like the bracket on yours has the bolts going vertically down through it.

You may be able to put an AU airbag into the position the BA airbag sits in.. I haven't seen an AU one to know..

In terms of everything else.. provided the wiring remains all AU, then you shouldn't have a problem, do away with all the BA electrics and it should be a reasonably direct swap. As you've said retain the AU cluster (you can probably change the fascia but keep the mechanical side) Keep your heater etc..

To make the car 4 door power windows, you'll need to get the interior wiring looms out of a car that had this feature..

I hope this helps
MaTTe

iv got the ba power window switches working today and put a few extra mounting parts for the door in now... the passenger window was pretty easy i just used a multi meter to figure out what pin was open/closed when the switch was up/down or out... and then used a crimping kit to adapt the looms... the drivers 4 switch one wasnt that easy... id say because of the auto down feature... so iv just got the drivers window working of the rear right switch... iv also got the the rear window lock/unlock thing working (supply's 12 when of and 0 when on) so that will be used to power the rears (when i get around to purchasing the regs)

Cheers Cam

so today i pulled the misses BA fairmont apart and dummy fitted the center console... photos dont do it justice but you get the idea...

in the photos the AUs in neutral so you can see the whole center console will need to move towards the dash... will also have to cut back a bit of the white plastic around the gear shift and modify how the air hose parts connect to the dash...

i personally think the AU handbrake will look better and fit better into the center console that the BA...
