Nice work. Welcome to the club :lol:

The wood grain trims work really well with your Steering Wheel. Did you get the foam backing too? I found that the road noise was a lot less after fitting mine.

That looks great mate! I was expecting the trims not to line up so well with the dash, but there looks to be very little difference.

How do you find the slight shade difference in person?

Hey Troyman

Do the EF/EL kick panels fit ok? I was told that they are shorter than the EA-ED ones.

That looks great.

How is the handbreak mounted? I note that you are using a bench seat and a column shift auto, so then ford must have used a dash mounted handbreak in the ef/el as well?

The handbreak problem is probably the only thing holding me back from seriously looking at the dash mod.
