Will all BA / BF sedan roof linings fit in a BA MKII XR6 sedan without modification? Meaning if I got one from a BF Fairlane, or a Fairmont Ghia for example... Are there any physical differences besides the sunglasses holder?

means i don't know re Fairlane/Ghia as i'm unsure if there is a wheelbase change as per earlier models. can put any normal sedan lining into other half's Fairmont, which i have.

Ok so someone feel free to correct me here, but from the research I've done, the roof shape is the same across the entire platform of BA / BF sedans, but the Fairlane (and possibly Ghia) have extra map lights in the front (similar looking to the rear pillar ones).

So it look likes I'm now hunting for a Fairmont.

as mentioned ... pretty sure as you said Fairlane/LTD have the extra "COURTESY LIGHTS" behind the sunvisors .... as mine does, but does not turn on when the doors are opened [only meant to work when you turn em on]. you would have to modify the wiring to do that. Fairmont may/may not have the lights at the front. if need be it's easy to modify head lining so you can fit em.

Yeah I don't want the extra lights, hence wanting to go for Fairmont.

Did you do the fabric on that yourself? If so, bravo :shock:

Apparently ultra strength ados spray contact adhesive works, but on the attempt I did on the EF it went all soggy and discoloured... Maybe I used too much
