Default thinking about changing the dash and center console

OK-
Well I've been egged on by some other friends up here to change out the dash and center console, since I've got the 98'' SSEi interior, and it looks funny with the oldschool dash and interior. I think that it looks good already. But has anyone else tried this?
I'm on my way down to the yard to have a peek. Parts would be comming from a '92 SSE (Dash cluster has all the same parts- boost guage) center console would come out of the same 98 that the interior came from.
Let me know what you guys think.

Do you have the wiring to do it. Remember everything is control by the ECM....wow...it would be an interesting challenge

OK- it is possible- if you want to re-configure all the brackets, and wiring (like Jim said)
But I've wussed out- If I had a week of spare time maybe
So that idea is back on the shelf. But I did install a strut tower bar today- what a major difference, painted it gold.....
