yep doors and skins are exactly the same from the EA to the EL.
you also get the bonus of the better tibble lock thiny and colour coded door handles.

Doors are exactly the same from what I hear, except of course the handles and skins inside the door.

Ok, are we talking about doors or the door skin (i.e. the interior trim)???

The doors are pretty much the same (except for larger speaker holes).

The skins will fit on EA doors, but will look a bit dodgy unless you have bigger speakers installed (because you can see the metal of the door through the EF/EL's larger speaker grill.

Dave (Thanatos).

When you put on your EF door trims, did you actually wire up the electric side mirror switch? Because for the life of me I cannot work out how to get the EL switch workin on my NA electrics! grrr!

Cheers,
Chris

Actually, mate I haven't put the door trims on yet coz i've been a bit too slack...

The pictures I posted were of door trims that I stole from Dad's company car and put on my doors to see what they looked like.

Sorry, I can't help you there, mate, but good luck with it anyway!

Thanks, chris.

I guess that gives me some good fun stuff to look forward to!

It might actually be easier for me, coz I haven't got electric mirrors at the moment, so i'd be wiring it all up at once. Then again, that might make it even harder.


Cheers,
Dave

The door skin is the outer metal visible from outside the car, this didnt change until the AU I believe....
How do the EF/EL door trims go with the EA interior by the way?

They go great with the EB/ED interior, but the EA interior doesn't quite match.

I was informed that the EB-EL features a 'cool grey' interior and the EA has a 'warm grey', so mixing these would result in some weird warm/cool hybrid, and that's just not cricket!
Sounds like a load of BS to me, but i'm colour blind, so i can't really refute it.
