Lol, how are the black EF buttons pov? More modern than the EL ones when not against a grey background. Who puts grey buttons in car interiors nowadays? Exactly my son.

You didn't do too bad - the fairmont door trims they also had were cheap, went for $6 for all 4.
You can refurbish the buttons: http://www.fordmods.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=34631.
Just so you know as well, the EA-ED power window 4 switch setup is pretty much the same as the EF/EL ones, except for the plastic rockers and the plastic cover facia, and the rear enable/disable button. The rear enable/disable button can be changed between assemblies though.

A bargain - I sold Mash my buttons for $50 and my old switches for $15.50 on ebay, just switches, no cup holder or surround.
