front seats fit perfect

the rear lower part will fit perfect, but the rear top (the folding parts) wont fit.

The LWB and SWB falcons have a different angle where the upeer rear seats bolt in. You'll need to do some custom bracket work, or use the brackets from EL SWB.

I did the whole seat conversion from an NF to an ED ..

Front seats where a bit of stuffing around .. rear seats do fit in, But as waggin said, the brakets for the fold down seat locking bolt is slightly higher in a LWB ..

Do what I did, belt them with a hammer! lol .

Also, the rear side parts will have to be refabicated using the standard rear cusions.

Ah yep! The side bolsters! :D Forgot about them :)

So the hammer did the trick hey? I never got around to putting the top half of the leather Fairmont Ghia interior into my Wagon - I might have to pull it out of the shed and find a big fkn hammer :P

What i cant understand, is that if ford kept everything almost the same, why couldnt they keep the front seats the same as well!
