I was swapping a woodgrain radio surround with a mate yesterday when I found the following differences..

His car is an EL and the one I had to swap was off a EF from memory..

This one has 2 screw holes for mounting...

As you can see one has a recessed cigarette lighter provision and the other is more flush..


Its mostly curiosity as ill make it fit, but any ideas on what the differences are about?

Also the wood grain is like a plastic sticker glued to the plain grey surround, and it dosnt have felt inside the pocket under the radio hole.. The other one dose.

The RH press mount screws out with a spanner IIRC. So you you can swap it around.

the one with 2 screw holes is a series 1 ef, the ashtray lid covers the lighter, series 2 changed to one screw and the clip thing with an exposed lighter
