I went to a wreckers this morning to look at options for seats, door trims and a console. They werent too sure what would fit and so they tried lining up a couple of door trims off an EL and an EF plus an EF fairlane, they reckon that none of them would fit and that i would really only have the option of EA series, same for the console. Also apparently i am limited on the seats too.

I figured i would ask all the experts on here ... i want something decent.

Cheers

Yeah i wouldnt mind doing the whole dash conversion too - but i called a couple of auto sparkys last week and no one want to to it :cry: and it looks like the door trims wouldnt fit either.

AU console, The hardest part with the dash is purely the physical fitment as most of the wiring is there inc bem. Door trims are a b**ch, i found nothing fits. Maybe custom retrimed?
