FE LTD chrome interior handles (would look good in your ute alongside that woodgrain strip).
Yeah thanks Cam, didn't know there was chrome interior handles, seen plenty of chrome outside ones. I have done some more woodgrain for the shifter and air vents.

It is on LPG, and runs very well. What do I need to look for when getting a RWC? It is registered.
Check over the car in general, LPG wise, check the lockoffs work okay, no gas smell etc, main thing check is the tank test date.

Can I add central locking to the two doors?
Yep, with an aftermarket kit, and better still include an alarm. Don't bother fitting E series actuators, I swapped to aftermarkets in my ute - you won't regret it.

Got my hands on some DA (or was it DC ??) LTD front door woodgrain - real wood too :P .
Well the results are below, you do need to cut the door handle to make it fit, and have the handle 'wrap' around it.
The idea was to make it look like it was meant to be fitted, and to give the trim a bit of variation, along with keeping the std trim.
The X series door trims are not really in the same league as the EF/EL futura's and higher, but what do you think ???

good work :D

but i reckon it would look tons better if:

-you used the woodgrain off the rear doors , (its a bit shorter) and if it was the right way around

-and if the rear edge of the woodgrain sat flush with the rear edge of the cloth door insert

Yeah thanks dude. I did try them as per EA/ED setup, but 'upside down' seemed to match the rounded edge at the door trim top. Since the trim features all seemed to be to the rear, the slat seemed better balanced having it centrally located, and overall the slat seemed to fit properly in that position, unfortunately there's not a large amount of space to put it. I think a rear slat wouldn't look long enough to suit the door.
