So, this may be a wild question I know. But, what is the difference in installation between say a 96 Impala/Caprice dash assembly compared to my 88 Caprice? Heres my brain storm....I need a new dash (at least a new dash pad). I love the cockpit, more modern feel of the Imps. So, is it possible to swap the dash out of a 96? Im planning on a 383 swap, so I know that in order for all of my guages and what not to work would require some finaggling. And, a tranny swap is in the works too, so I could go to the floor mounted shifter at that point. Then id want to do the blazer overhead console as well. Again, this is just a brain storm idea, seeing if its even possible to do at all or if it would be just too much of a headache to tackle. I am NOT a mechanic myself...I just happen to be friends with a lot of mechanics, and I work in a parts department lol. So, this is something Id be paying a buddy in money/beer/pizza to do.
