Fabirc Shops

Yeah i will o check a few places tomorrow.. Monday and see what they say.. what ever price they give it should be very simular to you over there.
but yeah i will find out how much .

the only thing im worried about it how to fit it,

You can get it from any decent motor trimmers.

Ford original trims are still available, but are out of production.

hence a price of up to $600 a meter can apply when 'off the shelf' stuff is $12-14.

Re: Velour

Another option would be tracking down a wrecked DA LTD, though they seem pretty rare...

Its gonna be hard to make it look good. You will probably end up with creases and bubbles and shit in it.
Also keep in mind that that stuff gets dirty pretty easily.
An easy way of making it look decent would be to put a layer of thin foam underneath...that's the way its done in the LTD. I have to admit though that it looks shitloads better than the plastic stuff.

Here's what it looks like in the LTD:
