A little woodgrain would look good in the interior 8-). Door trim spears, shifter surround, dash spear if you can find one.

But get the LTD woodgrain if you do, its darker and has a real nice styled grain to it, fairmont ghia woodgrain doesnt seem to look as good imo

Lol i remember that one. It was quite bad wasnt it. I reckon black goes well in the e-series interior, it looks sexy, just wish it came from factory like that. What FordFairmont did was real nice though, suits the cappa interior well. Almost convinced me to do it too :)

Have you got the grey coloured interior in the Fairmont goody?

I like the grey better than the cappa to be honest lol, the cappa one gets dirty very quickly, especially the arm rests which happen to change colour. Id get some woodgrain doortrim spears fitted or complete door trims from a fairmont ghia or fairlane/ltd with woodgrain and get the door cards retrimmed to whatever colour you want. Then later on retrim the whole interior to match :lol:. Seriously though, woodgrain in Fairmonts is a must i reckon :mrgreen:

I think the woodgrain dash spear makes it unbalanced unless you have an ELGT steering wheel.
