no reason why the fronts wont fit. Unsure about the rears but i think you had to mod the way they clip in or something.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but...

I am (fingers crossed soon) coming into possession of a new interior (everything from the dash back). My chances are apparently better at getting grey leather out of a Fairlane than a Fairmont Ghia. Problem is my car is a SWB (Fairmont).

Questions:

- I have the same question about the seats. I presume I will need to re-trim my existing side bolsters in leather for the rear seat, but has anyone got any more detail on anything needing to be done to the frame (or the bit where it plugs in down the bottom?)

- Will the door trims swap straight over? Or are the rear doors on the Fairlane longer?

- Is the parcel shelf wider in the Fairlane?

- Anything else I should be aware of?

Cheers :D

Been there, seen that:

Thankfully I've already teed some up. Grey. And with no slash marks.

Now all I need is someone to tell me how to fit them to my car :P

couldn't see why not AU to AU couldn't be much of a drama even thought it is a longer wheel base it is still the AU chassis
