Confused!!! Door linigs!

Guys,

Listen up.... Try and help me out here.
I have a Ea Gl, the interior is brown. I dont mind it as it is not common. But.... i ripped out the seats and put in brown fairmont ghia ones.

Now i have a problem, i have yucky Brown GL Door linings. What can i do? I want something a bit more.... up to date, something that look more comfertable.
I would like fairmont ghia ones but i dont have electric windows so this is out of the question.

What can i do?
Whatt are the farimont door linings like?
WHat about the S-Pac.

Guys, help me out here.

you can whack fairmont ones in and just cut holes for the winders... that's my plan, when i track down a set - apparently the rear winder fouls on the cigarette lighter/ash trays, but i'll find a way around that eventually...

sorry mate - more info

if you put electric window trims on a manual window door, the built in cigarette lighter/ashtray/power window switch console thing gets in the way of the winding handle's turning circle...

i think i heard about a FF member who removed the console and added a piece of fake woodgrain to cover the hole left in the door trim... am yet to see photo's though...

i think Brent from Brisbane has done this mod on his wagon

I have done the conversion to the fairmont doors trims, but not the fairmont ghia. The only difference that I can see other than the electric windows and cigarette lighter is the lack of the ghia logo. I have posted a picture to help out, but I found some rear fairmont door trims with the manual window winders from a wrecker.

It comes up pretty good I think. The only problem that I had was the I didn't have central locking, so I had to install the central locking with the tibble locks. I took a few modifications but worth the effort.

I have something to say, its better to burn-out, than to fade away

looks schmick mate... gotta find me some trims!

question for ghia owners - how come some fairmonts/ghia's have a fluffy centre console and some don't - i noticed Jack Travis's didn;t, and it's a full blown Ghia... was it an EAII/EB thing or what?

Just a thought. Apart from the red linings, what is the different between the s-pack seats and standard gl/gli seats.

Ive got an ED gli and are just looking for some different seats.

the s pak seats have the same "ass groove" as the fairmont, however the GL seats don't. Also, the S seats have red piping around them, well mine do anyways, but they won't for long as I am fitting the Fairmont Ghia seats I have kicking around. As for the Ghia badges on the door trims, I have one on each, as located in copscatchme's front door pic. I will put a pic of the woodgrain mod where the electrics were as soon as i buy the batteries for my digital camera, probly some time this week. Also, the elctric windows option is a pain in the perverble rear, I don't recommend it. Central locking maybe..... Anyway, that answers a few of the questions asked in these threads. I learned all these from the wreck i paid for. Not only is it a money maker but its also a learning curve...lol By the way, I got the woodgrain from the local joinery, they have heaps of it. Cheers!

Drive it like you stole it.....
