Guys. Im looking to the car that I really want to play with.

Seems that its most likely an EF/L Ghia (white) with the ticky body kit...

BUT... I really REALLY hate the EF/L Interior.

.. So im thinking an EB Fairmont Interior might be the go.. Keeping the EEC5, ABS Controller etc thats in there. Of course I can keep my EB GT Wheel

So question : How hard is it? - whats my likely problems?

Wow, someone preferring the EB interior to the EL? Different.

You could possibly find an EB Fairmont owner on here that would be happy to do an interior swap with you, if that's what floats your boat

I like the EB Climate control etc and dash....

But you can be 90% sure that the plugs under the D/S are all different... I bet.

Would love to have the EL Ghia body'd EB... hmmm

Well - the Mechanicals of an EF/L are a little better, and so is the (already wired in) Fans/ECU/AC

The EB LCD Displays are just way nicer

You gotta be kidding, I have a EL Fairmont Ghia and its looks much classier and modern inside than an old eb ghia. You cant change a newer one back to the older style anyway as the airbag system still needs to be operational for the car to be roadworthy. If you like ebs so much buy one and change all the stuff that you want from the el onto it.
