Hmmmmm, I gave it aquick (and bodgy go) and unfortunately, found that the back handles are just ever so slighty smaller (In terms of length). Roughly 1.5cm shorter.
So it means that roughly 2mm of the Door Lock Hole was exposed with a back Handle up front. (Well, that what happened when I gave it a go on some spare doors I had lying around for a while).
Though I have to admit I didnt try Moving the handle back, or drilling some new mounting holes further back, to try and cover the hole........ So I would be very interested if anyone has done this, and found no problems with it.
It would be nice to see some pictures of an EF/EL with it done.
I started looking into getting the hole welded up, and such, but it would eventially require a respray of the door, not to mention if the paint didnt quite match, a respray of the car Lol.......
I know the ELs actually had a Front Passenger Door one made up specifically for this purpose, which bolts straight on the EF's, but it still leaves the drivers door Lock exposed. (Though I will prolly get an EL one, for the sake of it).
As for the AU's Dammmm, I wouldnt be surprised.. Its always the way, you can do all the funky stuff on the other models, not the model that you have Hehehehehehe...
