is it possible to put fairmont seats into ef XR6?

the driver side seat doesn't go up high enough for me to see over the dash and there a little bit sketchy to sit in.

As long as you use EF/EL seats they are a straight fit up. Good idea to do the back seat as well to keep the same look. Fairlane seat actually sit higher again.

I was seriously contemplating this mod.

In the end i couldnt find a decent set. Only issue if anything is the side lumber wont be as pronounced in the leather seats.

can get leather covers though, for the xr seats

Why not? I'm doing exactly that in my EB Xr8. Got them in my Eb Ghia & thought why not put a set in my Xr8 too? I have a set of leather EB/ED Ghia Recaro's to go in. If the leather isn't in great shape, maybe you need to get it re trimmed. Remember, these car's are getting on in the years now.

Cheers

Any front seat from an EF/EL/NF/NL/DF/DL will fit with no mods. Rear seat from short wheel base will have no issues,Rear base from Long wheel base is a straight fit, issue with the rears from long wheel base is the side bolsters.

AU seats are not a direct fit. But, all you need to do for the front seats is swap the frames over. Basically you unbolt all the padded bits and swap them over. I have AU Fairmont fronts in the Wagon (God I need to update my build thread :)) Very comfy compared to the povo GLi seats she did have.
Couple of threads that might help:
