poor boot finish on BA

Hi Guys,

The only bad thing that keeps cropping up in the BA reviews is the poor finish to the boot. Can anyone agree to this and why?

Can agree, Yes. To solve it though, drop into ford spares and pick up a fairmont liner for around $55 with clips, looks the goods then.

Re: poor boot finish on BA

Does anyone have a pic of this?? I tried looking on the newfalcon website but they only have the $135 plastic boot liner (or is this what it is?).

Try this link for a pic. I can recommend the carpet lining, its a very cheap mod to the boot to make it look better

boot liner

best option by far is the rubber like boot liner, it is very tough easy to clean and looks far better than the poxy bit of rag covering the spare they call boot carpet.

Re: poor boot finish on BA

boot lid carpet not only looks better but helps stop nasty objects denting your boot lid too.

The boot liner looks much better, but really, does it matter what the quality of the inside of the boot is, I mean how often do you really look in there. Out of site out of mind for me.

Re: poor boot finish on BA

Hang on, are poeple talking about 2 differnt things here? I assumed that xeespghia, SM and 'Minge were talking about the boot LID finish and the Fairmont trim that you fit to the inside of the lid. And that everyone else is talking about the floor of the boot.
