Has anyone done a dash swap with something out of a more modern car? My dash and gauges (has rally pack full gauge package) but dont like the dated look and if I'm considering upgrading to a modern drivetrain transplant, am thinking this may be an easier row to hoe, but am open to a new cluster in a modified/custom dash. Just fielding options at this point. Thanks!

Fbody dash has been done. Although it would take a big fabrication effort to get the dash physically mounted.....the gauges would be dead simple......assuming that you swapped in an ls concurrently.

Not knowing your skill or experience level, I would advise against any dash swap. None are easy and most look really out of place in my opinion. Projects like this are what turn drivers into parts cars.

There is a thread on here somewhere with a drivetrain and interior swap out of a Lexus. Not my taste but impressive.

I've seen late model Malibu, and Monte Carlo dashes installed into our cars. Youtube it.

I think a digital cluster out of a 1st gen S10 will swap in if you are up to a little wiring and fab work to the gauge surround.
