Re: Components needed for manual conversion
EF/EL Fairmonts did acually come with manuals, SVO's for example. Fairmonts are based on the Falcon chassis and engine and all that so an engineers certificate is not needed, but since alex has a lwb, then that's a different story.
I guess you could argue that falcon/fairmont wagons came in manual, and are LWB, so a fairlane/LTD is acceptable, but then the law can be picky and say that the fairlanes had a slightly different chassis upfront to accomodate for the longer front end, and therefore needs a cert.
I suggest you investigate the legalities further before making assumptions on the law and getting your hopes up. If it's all cool, then definately go for it.
Oh, and if an engineers cert is required (which, I believe almost certainly is the case) kiss your RACV insurance goodbye, say hello to Just Cars :D and the nice big premiums that come with it....:D:D:D
