Ok, so I won this auction on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...item=190143460243&sspagename=ADME:X:AAQ:US:11

Yes, that's me. Can you believe I've been on ebay with the same username for 10 years now?

Anyway, I thought this would be an awesome opportunity to upgrade to leather interior. All in all, it cost me 500. If you look at the parts, there are a lot of extras...door panels, console and more. I don't know what I'm going to do with it all.

I have a question and maybe you guys can answer it for me. On the auction he lists "dark grey" as the color, yet it looks black to me. Even the trim code says "BLK". These are black, right? Did Ford make leather seats for the Fusion in dark grey?

That's what I thought. Like I said, leather interior factory cost 900. and it cost 1K to get leather done aftermarket. For 500. I get the leather upgrade, still have my old cloth seats and get extra parts.

If anyone is looking for some spare interior parts and/or black cloth seats in great condition, let me know.

Thanks!

Wow, 349 is actually a pretty decent price for this - Hopefully shipping isn't going to be something like 2 grand :)

Very affordable - and if someone ruins something, you've always got another entire spare interior.....whoah...that's kinda cool.

Well, I'll let you guys check it out when I'm out that way in a few weeks. :lol:

Shipping was 160. total. Already paid for it. Mods that will be done in the next two weeks (on the way or here just waiting on install):

Leather interior upgrade
Fog light add with black bezels
Black Ford emblems (front and back)
Third lower grill bar

After that, I HAVE to get my double-din DVD player.

Thanks man--I caught the post but didn't know if anyone actually bought them yet. I'll be interested in the quality of them. I figure the black would probably be better on my merlot than the blue factory. Whadda ya think? :cheers:

I think Merlot would look real cool on your car. He makes many different colors. Look at all the different colors. I think even silver would look real cool on a Merlot car.

would have to be black leather it's the ONLY dark color available from ford. LKQ is a pretty good huge salvage yard parts distributor.
Do you plan to put in the leather or having it done? Leather is a pain at times to install, but it is possible.

Well, it's not the seat covers. It's the actual seats from an 07 Fusion. I'm going to take out my cloth seats and put these in. It even ships with the leather package door panels.

Actually, we got them at fordemblems.com. But it looks like Scott has stopped taking new orders as of 9/23. I'm glad I got my order in already.

I found the site the other day. Is he just back logged or what? Hope he's not like the guy with the engine covers and just quits making them!
BTW-Does he have the big oval for the front or did you have to send your in?

Scott provides all the emblems. And yes, he has the right sizes for both the front & back emblem. I have no idea why he's stopping taking orders. I have not talked to him about it.

This is good. From the pics on the web they look great. Gotta have a set, no doubt.

Actually, that said 9/23/06. I think he got a cease and desist. So, for his privacy, we should probably keep this quiet. :lol:
