Okay so I was parked down the river and... she "threw a leg out of bed". Ford didn't take dirty women into account when they designed the back seats of the falcon in 1994. A stray leg flew out and broke the drivers side head rest and its snapped the plastic surroundings that go around the two poles that go into the top of the seat. It sits there fine just a little bit wobbly. Figured I'd fix it before I put the vehicle back up for sale.

Thanks for any assistance :)

Apparently it was well worth it.

Hmmmm, that wouldn't have occurred down at Apex Park by any chance? We broke various interior fittings in a KA Laser and my XD down there at night on many, many occasions back in the late 80's.... :wink:

Plenty of little tracks off the road to hide away in the scrub!
