G’day,
New to the forum and knowledge of cars is just from fixing mine. So as the nudists said to each other, please bear with me!
The bus is an 89 EA Falcon S pack Wagon and has more thing wrong with it than reasons to sleep with Angelina Jolie, but I love it and have decided not to buy a newish one and do the old falc up. I love the wagon.

Got my hands on a 90 EA Fairmont Ghia sedan off a friend. Car is in ok condition. I am going to cannibalize the Fairmont as the body is V/rough, though interior in some parts is better. Im planning to rip it apart for as many parts as possible, engine parts(cover), electrics, shocks etc as they all seem ok. And has a set of Simmons beauties (though green inside sections) on it with brand new Nankang shoes. I am assuming the EA falcon and Fairmont ghia for just about everything would be interchangeable? Is that correct?

Seeing as this is the interior mods sections I will ask as the s pack is very basic, what could I swap into the wagon? I am planning to swap bucket seats as mine are broken (don’t ask), door consoles (too be redone painted, maybe change to power windows if possible. What else could I use? And what couldn’t I use? Would love to here some ideas? Not keen on changing the dash as I love the old dial set up.
Interior Mod so far are nothing special-
-Nice juicy pioneer unit with 4 x 4inch door speakers, and 6 inch xplods in the tailgate and connection for a DVD player through the stereo.
-Centre console from EB. Painted.
-Radio console white, as dash will be soon maybe. Not sure.
-All round midnight tint.
-A few Spray painted panels inside back, new carpet.

swap the whole dash and ECU + wiring loom out of the ghia into the wagon, and presto, you have CLimate Control and trip computer, as well as a digital speedo :P

oh and welcome to fordmods!

Cheers for the welcome and thanks for the info.
To change the whole dash might be a plan. Alot of research to be done for sure.
Thanks.
