Yeah They will fit in 100%
Unfortunately its either Long wheelbase fits longwheelbase (Waggin, Fairlanes, LTD's), and
Shortwheelbase fits shortwheelbase (Gli/Futura's/XR/Fairmonts)
I know of 2 people though that have swapped between them,
(EF Fairmont Ghia Interior into an EF Waggin), and
(NF Fairlane Interior into an EF Chaser)
They required the side bolsters to be re-upholstered, (Swapped the foam inside the bolsters), and also drilling for the 60/40 Rear seat mounts.
The drilling is easy enough, its just the mounting locations for the lower bolts on the seats differ ever so slightly, so you will need to drill 4 holes to make the seats bolt in.
The side bolsters cost $50 a pair to do. (So if you are going to convert, dont throw away your original side bolsters !!!!!!)
