Firstly, the scuff "plates" in B-Series falcons are gay. So, i was considering Removing the plastic scuffer, fitting a length of door seal to plug the gap, then putting proper FG scuff plates on the door sill, where they're meant to go! My question is, will they fit?? If anyone has the measurements for FG scuffs, it'd be much appreciated!

Cheers.

They made the Ford Ka, that is about as gay as a car can get.

Alright alright, my point is, I want full size ones. Not the alloy inserts in a BA. That's the difference.

Yeah I'm just aiming for the Ford logo ones. Wanna make sure they fit before I go buying them, and none of the eBay sellers have any details on measurements.

Oh excellent, they'll fit easy. What's the deal on door seals? Can you buy one door seal individually or do you have to grab the whole set?

You CAN buy them singularly but might as well get a second hand one and cut it OR, you could cut the lip of the scuff plate you already have and put the stick one in place? :)
