NC Fairlane Ghia Interior in EA

Im looking at installing NC Fairlane ghia interior into my EA. now, i know the front seats and door trims bolt straight up, however, it is the rear seat im aprehensive about.

Im intrested to know if anyone knows wether the seats bolt straight up with no mods. Im worried as the bolstered between the rear seat and the side of the car on the fairlanes is alot bigger as the seats are further back being a LWB model.

If this is the case then the fairlane rear seat wont bolt up and fit perfectly wont it.!!!

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I could use an EA Ghia interior, but the NC Fairlane ghia doortrims etc look so much nicer with woodgrain etc..

What are EB2/ED Ghia interiors like? Do they differ a great deal from the NC Ghia? Maybe try those if they're not too different.

Ah this is an easy one, I changed my interior in my NA to an interior from an EL Fairmont Ghia...

Since you are wanting to put in the long wheel based version (NC)interior into your EA, you will find that the back side cushions (bolsters) wont fit properly and you will have to swap the brackets on the fold down seat backs because the NC's ones will have a longer travel on them compared to the EA. It isnt too hard to do, but the only way to get the side cushions right is to go and get the NC upholstery taken off the side cushion and then have that put onto the EA one. To do that it cost me about $50 each side, and the brackets I just changed them myself.

To my knowledge, the EB-ED trim will bolt straight into an EA. its only a problem when you start playing with the long wheelbased versions

Walkinshaw, were you at the last cruise in Adelaide? And are you going on the cruise on the 6th (this sunday)? If you are I can show you what needed to be changed when I converted my interior.

I am also interested in this mod, eventually. ON_iCE has done it to his EA II Fairmont and it makes a big difference :)

Sounds great! You got any pics of the conversion? I have an EA S that I wouldnt mind sliding a EB-EL Ghia interior into.
