Re: Just a Few Questions??
Well I can comment a bit on auto console between XF and EA, the XF and EA console both share the 2 screws through the bottom of the glove box, and in the other places, best I remember, the front connection is different, the XF has 2 screws to hold it to the dash, these dont exist on the EA.
As to exact measurements and placement I have no idea, goto the wreckers with a tape measure and see how it goes. But I think you will find it should fit nicely.
Hope that helps a bit :0)
Changing to black will be fine, you may want to look into new reproduction carpet isnt all that expensive if you get the base loop pile carpet, and looks really good, bought it years ago when I had my cortina. Rare Spares I think sell it for a start, or should point you in the right direction.
I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
