fixed up the above image and this is my little how to...

what iv done is obviously fitted a BA steering wheel...
the problems
1. With the BA airbag hooked up to the AU the airbag light flashes...
(im not to bothered because i plan to refit the BA dash but this time include engine and wiring which will fix this prob)
2. AU indicators and wiper stalks becaome quite a distance from the steering wheel
(i'v added pics below of how i fitted BA stalks to the AU steering column)
3. buttons dont work but i havnt tried (i dont have cruise and i have a alpine headunit so the volume control didnt work anyway)

Before
Image
After
Image
1. Removing your AU steering wheel (a heap of threads on how to do that are floating around)
Image
2. remove the clock spring by pressing in the 3 clips and sliding it forward (very gently and be careful not to rotate it)
Image
3. Remove two screws and that metal plate on the right you should now be able to pull the AU stalk out of the steering column be careful not to lose the two little ball bearings that come flying out, now fit your new BA indicator stalk and srew the metal plate back in
4 Remove the 3 screws that hold the plastic stalk housing onto the steering column slide it forword and the left stalk is pretty much the same as the right except the 2 screw are at the back not front and it pivots horizontally not vertically, you also have to cut the adjustable wipers wires (the only two running up the stalk if it is a sedan/ute) then reconnect them to the BA Stalk (wires are the same colour)
Image
5. once both BA stalks are fitted slide the housing back on, screw it in then gently slide the clock spring back on
6. Fit the BA steering Wheel
7. connecting the horn, wiring as pictured below (Black to Black, Grey to Purple
Image

Final Product

Hi,
Just have a selfish question here. How much would the rear boot spoiler cost? Just like the one on your car mate on the previous page of this thread. I have on that looks like that and i want to get rid of it basically. Thanks.

you could try and sell it for no more that $150 but i wouldnt expect you'd be able to sell it... and you'd also have to get the holes in your boot filled ($$$) most people get rid of them because they dont want a spoiler and find someone that wants a spoiler (with the same car and colour) and just swap the boots over...
sone that with mine and the misses BA mont... helps if you have a common colour...

Cheers Cam

We've sold the BA to free up some cash, so the AU is becoming the daily driver for laura, for that reason iv removed the BA airbag and fitted a AU leather/woodgrain steering wheel. (i wanted a working airbag etc.)

Pic of the wheel (and my 2 girls :) )

Image

Picked up a few parts from a AU2 Fairmont Ghia 75th Anniversary Edition Today.

So far I've fitted the rear door trims and rear door wiring looms, Premium sound Parcel Shelf and A Pillar covers. ive also got the Heater Box and Dash to fit in a few weeks. Few Pics

exciting news lol, ordered a slimline number plate for the front. got a new car seat for lexie, its black so suits the leather better(the old one was grey) and have fitted a 8" BA sub in the parcel shelf pretty much just to fill the hole... the new sheds pretty much finished, just have to put the carport up and then ill fit the fairmont dash.

for the sake of putting up photos heres the shed (carports going to the right)
