question! Does anybody know if the ba xr seats will fit in a ef falcon? is it quick swap over or do you need new rails and drilling new mount holes/supports? :?

You'll need new everything. Prepare to drill, grind, weld and all other things under the sun to fit those seats in. Also be prepared for them to not fit nicely, AND you'll have to get a blue slip afterwards as they are a safety feature.

As nice as the idea is, it'll take a lot of effort and dedication.

Yeah, definitely a more creative idea. Keep the seat structure and rails, and just get a professional to re-mould the shape and coverings. That'd look ace and you'd be the only one with it...

Exactly what i was going to suggest. Go to a seat retrimmer and get them to mould the seat to a similar shape etc as the BA xr seats, then get em to retrim the seats similar to the BA's. May be cheaper in the longer run, rather then chopping things up in the car.
