Its off a DF DL LTD. Will it replace the mid series (futura fairmont) dome light with relative ease?

Should do - have a look at pic 1 in my gallery - you can just see the front impression where the mid series light was.
Do check with the seller that the plastic base that screws into the roof comes with it.
Edit: The seller is an FM member . . . . .

Pretty much so. Just solder/splice the wires together.

Well it looks like Johns_xr6. A few of the Melbourne dudes know him.

hmm.... interesting.

Do they slot straight in, or were they made from scratch?

If I was to do that, I'd have to change the door lights... the rear passenger lights... the floor lights in the front... the centre console light... the key switch..... But if its a plug and play job this might be allright!
