Re: Ef/el Front Seats Coversion
The easiest way to modify the front seats is to cut a piece of tube to fit (about 5 inches), then drill a new hole in the floor and use a long nut+bolt to secure it. Easy.
Can't say I agree with fordfanatic, I went on a road trip with a mate a few years back in an EL wagon, Perth to Albany to Esperance, then back up through Kalgoorlie. Can't remember the exact distance covered offhand, but it was well over 1 000 km. Those seats were some of the most comfortable I've been in. I currently have EF Fairmont seats in my EB and love them. Much better than the old EB ones!
