    GSI door cards aren't anything special. VX in their usual cheepniss used grey 'Texas' cloth that is found in SXi's and SRi's.,

    So you could use the cards form a 5dr version of those

    Windows will depend on whats fitted to the van, it's a lottery.
    You may have all the wiring, you may have some, or you may have none. You will need to see what is fitted to the doors & vehicle.
    Worst case you will need new door looms & wiring from the car into the doors.

    you will more than likely need two door looms. two motors and mechanisms, two door switches, really for the fuse box and the handle surrounds for the switches.
    door cards from a 5 door fit, gsi ones are too long.
