you would find the fairnont door handles get in the way.
Why not fit electric windows if you are going to the trouble?

yes i was going to do this using fairlane trims, but i noticed that right from futura to fairlane the handle is longer and in the way, but you can't reomve or mod the handle, because it'll leave a hole in the trim where the handle used to screw to the door.

I was too lazy to convert to P/W. hehe, maybe later on.

As soon as I get the EF gli door trims installed in the EB I'll post up the missing gap of info thats required for their fitment.

That would be Great.

That should have all the angels covered then.

Would that be 'angles' or 'angels' Ben?
Are our tech threads now becoming 'guidance from above'?

i think the only differences would be that the gli door trims are slightly different to the fairmont/ghia ones..
and you need to drill 2 holes to mount them on the outside edge of the door and that you need to add that small bracket for the ashtray looking handle the gli has in the arm rest.lol..

No mate, you don't. You can also retain the EB door mirrors with a little bit of rewiring.

Cheers

EF-EL Console without the dash looks awful.

You need the whole dash as well.

An AU console is a good option, but not if you have power windows.

Cheers
