Hi

Got a near complete fairlane seat set and wondered of the fairlane rear seat will fit the std cars,

Do know the side bolsters are different but took them anyway so the fabric can be pulled off and be put onto normal side bolsters

Do know fronts will go straight in

Fronts go straight as do the rears, as you said, you need to redo the bolsters.

Base and seat backs are the same for sedans, backs are different for wagons. Side bolsters are larger for Fairlane and Wagon compaired to SWB Sedans.

hi

put the top part of the back seat out of a nf fairlane into the ef fairmont and the seat fitted no problems every bolt lined up well and is even level with the top of the standard side bolsters which have to be re-upholstered with the material from the fairlane bolsters.

one small problem the catch on the top part of the back seat lines with the striker comming out the bolsters but the catches dont want to latch for some reason.

could anyone please help out with any answers and give ideas of why
