Hit up Billboost on this one. he did a conversion few years back. It can be done with some work required year range 92-99. Lots of work and parts 2000 and newer.

From Bill in a dif post:

All here that have done the swap at least once please smile

Windshield image does not suffer like the guy who used to run this forum would tell everyone. He never tried it, never saw one, and IMHO he was quite full of brown, smelly stuff.

Is it the same perfect image, not quite. A person that isn't going from one with to one w/o will not be able to notice that it'* not perfect. And if adding to a W body, it'* the same.

You'll need the dash. That makes it easy. Swap the wiring harness from yours then add in the hud wires, run the cable for the adjuster and install into your car. Presto, all set.

Thanks Todd...lol there was a little controversy on how hard it was..

the dash comes out with about 10 bolts and one main electrical connector and two small ones. It'* a one day kinda job.
