Also does anyone have a suggestion for what I should do about this chip in the woodgrain on the T-bar surround? I was thinking of just sticking something on top of it. Something small, ornament or something, lol.

Woodgrain looks awesome against the black.

Maybe a mobile phone thing stuck on with blu tack or something.

You could put a ford badge or tickford wings or by the little ltd sticker that df ltds had!

Another option for that hole, depending how much you want to play around...

get an LTD/F/Wings badge, cut an exact mark around the badge and cut out the the woodgrain sticker
then stick the LTD/F/Wings badge on the plastic face under the woodgrain sticker so that the badge doesnt stick up as far because otherwise it may look out of place like you stuck it for no reason... just like the tickford radio surround :lol:

Yeah that was one of my first thoughts, might be the way I go.

Lol, too much mate. The leather is pretty bad, cracks on most pieces. And they kept dog(s) on the back seat. So the bottom bit of the rear seat is rooted big time with cracks and scratches. Let's just say over $800. I know it's a lot for a bad condition interior, but I know finding DL LTD woodgrain is difficult, and finding two front electric seats isn't all that easy either.

@emblem suggestions:
Yeah it sounds good, but all I could really put there is the Fairmont "F", but that might be too much as I have the Fairmont "F" on the dash, and I'll be putting them where the LTD badges are on the door trims too.

Lol, haven't even filled those holes with "F"s yet hey?

Thanks for replies lads, not sure which part of the interior I'll be tackling tomorrow.

Hey till lind...
I've got the perfect solution for ya mate...
You know the rear seats... instead of removing the foam and leather from the back part and putting it on your old bracket thingy or whatever, you could try doing what i did.

You know how when you put up your normal rear seat it locks in to those metal bar things that are pokeing out? well, when i installed my concorde seats, i simply unbolted them (the metal bar things) and then fit the seats in and they shut fine. No problems at all. Didn't have to adjust anything. The only thing is that the seats don't lock in place, so you don't have to push the button on the top to pull them down. You can just pull them down by pulling on the head rest. But they stay in place anyway, even if i brake hard.
Also, an added bonus... if you get locked in your boot again, you can simply push the seats down with your head or baseball bat (which ever you prefer) without having to squeeze your arm through them. :D:D

Hope that helps!

Here's a pic of what i'm talking about incase im not making any sense...

Haha, good idea mate, I've actually been fiddling with the position of that that to see if it can help the seat sit there. Maybe I'll do that until I can fix it up right. Thanks.

Do you mean the cruise today (saturday) to willowbank? I might try get out there (i'll be late though, finish work at 5 at mt gravatt). Even if you can't give me some equipment, you can give me some suggestions, as the leather is shaggarooed.

Update
Back seat is in, though they don't clip in as per Falcs suggestion, lol. I'll fix that up one day, the side bolsters soon too, need to buy some small wire cutters for that.

Seats look good in the seat, but they are still quite grubby, and the bottom section is cracked and scratched. O well, little progress.

O, and I think the black seat belts look good on the cappa. :P
