Hey, been hving a bit of a wander around online, and just wondering if anyone knows how much of an issue it would be to fit late model (BA/BF) seats into an EA? That being said, would anything up to EF/EL Go in fairly easy?

From EF onwards you will need to do modifications to the Rails. Nothing that can't be done. Easier option may be to fit a set of ED XR sets.

it's been done, but without a full interior trim change so they match, they look so unco.

Hence why I tracked down EB1 XR8 seats for my EB1 S-pac as the door trims and rear seat matched the trim on the front Recaro style seats I fitted.

Yeah, that's what i was thinking. i mean ATM, It's not really worth it, as it would mean a full retrim of the door cards, and the rear seat, which would cost $$$ Will have to keep my eye out EB XR Interior then

what trim option is your EA? AS S pac trim is the same as EB1 XR8. and EA Fairmont Ghia is the same as EB1 Fairmont Ghia which has leather/velour Recaro style seats.
