A bit more done on this yesterday and today.

yesterday, I upgraded the interior looms to smartlock so I can have the factory key less entry :D, I do a fair bit of wheeling and dealing in cars parts and what not, so the other week I swapped my fiberglass boat for two ED sedans one a Fairmont and the other a Fairmont Ghia, so what I did was just removed the complete dash assembly out of the Ghia and fitted it to my car, seats from this car will also be going in.

here is the dash assembly bolted in and all connected up just need to put some of the plastics back on..

Image

I also needed to set up my thermo fans properly so that when the A/C was turned on, the LH fan comes on and will also come on when the engine temp switch triggers with the A/C off.

My scribbles on the concrete..

Image

Work in progress..

Image

Almost finished..

Image

I will also finish off the dash today, vacuum the carpet and fit the front seats, i'll also try and get the rear seat skins swapped over from the sedan seats the the wagon one's.

They are a bit grubby, but I'll get the car detailed one day, when it's all finished.

Had enough for today think i'll tackle the rear seat tomorrow.

Those seats, IMO, are the best factory optioned E Series seats available.

I'll 2nd that! I love the factory recaro style seats!

Nice work on the wagon sexyr6! It coming along nicely, and that interior looks good. A good clean & a touch up of the seats and they will look like new.

Cheers

Over the past two nights I've been working on the rear seat, changing over the seat fabric with the Ghia trim.

fabric off of the wagon seat frame

bare seat frame

all installed with the Ghia fabric fitted to the wagon frames, just need to get a pair of leather bolsters to finish it off.

Well done Chris... Bet it feels good to have that whole catastrophe over now.
I've got to do battle with Vicroads on the 19th of Feb and into March.

Good work. Are you planning on swapping the door handles for EL ones??... I suppose you know about it, but I definitely believe it lifts the look heaps!

Cheers

I have a set of EB handles that I got color coded way back when I had the rear wing painted, just never got around to fitting them, I also want to color code the grey moldings around the car but need to locate a good front bar first, I have an ED XR6 front lip in the shed that will be painted/fitted all at the same time, I'm kind of going for the Fairmont Ghia look.
