As most of you have already seen at Geelong All Ford Day my car has had a transplant from grey ghia interior to the must more desirable LTD cappaccino interior.

Thanks to Steve (dcstraight), Adrian (ARM79) for making this possible as we all spent many man hours doing the conversion with only a few minor hurdles along the way.

A couple of photos are follwing which will hopefully work.....tell us what you think.

The only things that are still to be sourced or put in are the rear seat bolsters as they are still grey and the lumbar handles on the front seats.....oh and roof lining which will be left to prestige sunroofs.

Cheers

Once parcelshelf and rear seats are out they just attach from the parcelshelf centre to the base of the car which is just under the rear seat. A bit hard to explain....heres a photo of where the seat belts attach...

Image

sorry about the dodgy markings to show where the centre seat belt attaches......you just need a torx screw T-50 to remove the bolts or an allen key which we used cause we couldn't buy one.....

Cheers

And so you should feel guilty... There was alot of swearing, cursing and throwing of tools whenever a T50 bolt had to be removed... 8-)
