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.
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...
351C ZH MARQUISINATOR
Presenting, at great cost to management:
.020 over 351 Clevo, 10:1 comp, ported 302 heads, blueprinted and balanced, custom ground cam, Edelbrock intake, 600 Holley, K&N air filter, Custom Zip-Ties(tm), MSD ignition, Genie extractors, 2 x 2.5" exhaust, 2800rpm stally, rooted C4
i put fairmont ghia trims in mine, to over come the cigarette lighter from fouling with the winder i got a piece of woodgrain and covered the hole, then added a tickford badge for looks. it works too... wouldn't know otherwise. and yes, that member who added the woodgrain was me...lol
Drive it like you stole it.....
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
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!
