Re: EF/EL door trims into EA-ED for Dummies
These are almost the same as the rear doors except the metal rod needs to be modified slightly differently. I recommend starting with the back doors first.
This mod works for any car that has the 'Tibbe Locks'. In EA series 1 and pre 30th anniversary EA series 2 the rear doors have a different lock assembly. They act as such that when the lock is down the door can't be opened from the inside with the handle. This is a problem because the rear doors on EF and EL dont have lock buttons. A way around this could be to cut the door trim and retrofit the lock button assembly. I dont recommend putting these door trims on and not having the lock working. Either you will not beable to lock your car or you will not beable to use the rear doors.
The trims themselves are the dark grey colur on the very top bit. I used the Tibbe lock button from an EA as the dark grey is a perfect colour match. My EB2 buttons were the light grey colour and looked out of place.
The match up with the dash on the passenger side was almost perfect. My EB2 has the dark over light grey dash so the light colour on the door trim matched well. The upper darker grey didnt match that well with the dash. I think an EA - EB1 dash would be a closer match as the EB2 had a slightly lighter upper dash colour.
