Well, not really. I just spent tonight swapping my original interior door handles with the T-Series chrome-looking jobs. Was worth the arsing around removing trim, etc.

One thing I did notice, is how much better the Ford trim is. Heaps easier to remove than my the old EA's was, and the way everything is put together within the trim, and behind the trim is 10 times better.

Sweet, must change the look of the inside abit. ll you need is the chrome gear knob surround from the TSeries.

Yeah the trim fit/removal on these later falcons is heaps easier and goes back like the way it did. The XF has a shocking mechanism in holding the door trim together. It had these dodgy clips that squeeked and could never be put flush. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

I didn't get your PM either Pete! (Unless it was the one you sent yesterday, I got that.)

I have done this mod.......

parts cost me $15 each. They come with the whole handle assembly. I only used actual handle.

Looks very nice especially at night.........

Why did you only swap the handle, as opposed to the complete assembly? Swapping the lot meant undoing 2 screws, removing the cable end, and the reserve of that for the new one (After removing the trim.)

They do look best at night, agreed.

Looks sweet mate.
I always love a touch of chrome.

Are those door trims the same as the Falcon trim? or is it optional to all the cars? cause a mate of mine's AU ute has that trim, and I thought the standard falc had a different trim.

It's base XR trim, even says so on the sticker on the other side of the door trim panel.

Do you know if that trim was standard or an option in the utes?

I'll have to double-check.
But I'm pretty sure its the one you have.
