EB/ED garnish is not too difficult, just requires a little rewiring due to the different reverse light position. Of course you'll need the tail lights as well.
All E Series wheels are interchangable (and later X Series wheels will fit) plus there's a reasonable number of aftermarket options.
The Fairlane instrument cluster is a bit if a job to install because of the door-open indicator etc, but installing S/Fairmont dials is not hard. You'd need to run one cable for the oil pressure gauge, or something like that. Plenty of info on the forums.

If your car is a four speed auto and you buy a Fairmont/S pack cluster make sure it's one that has the 'power' indicator light.
You'll need to buy the oil gauge sensor as well.. It's a direct replacement for the switch to get the gauge working correctly.
A coolant level sensor can be added as well if you have a GL.. A useful addition considering possible head problems.
New clips to plug additional wiring (tacho and coolant sensor) into the instrument cluster sockets are available..
The part number is..

I put the EB garnish on my EA as well. Its not really hard at all. If you are going to used the EA boot lid, you need to remove part of the reverse light globe holders and find another way to secure the bulbs. If you don't secure them, they will probably touch the plastic and melt it.
