well here is the deal....it *might* be possible

the HUD is a 8 wire hookup....if you have the FSM from your donor car and a FSM for your car then it would be alot easier

my biggest concern is that the vaules that the HUD sees is the same as the pervious gen...

here is somethings you need to consider...

you wont have the HUD windshield...possible double imaging
you will need to mount the HUD switch somewhere
you will need to mount the HUD
you will need to cut the dash
you will need to fabricate a trim panel for the HUD

now the 92-95 have a cable driven adjustment for heigth...the 96+ have a electronic adjustement

it would be a big project, but bigger things have been done on the early 90'* SSE'*

Ya...not too sure about that.
It would have to be genuine general for me to put it in!
I think that it would look really god if I could get it to work. I'd like to replace my windsheild anyway, maybe i could get one that was reflective?

You can get a chemical to apply to the windshield to make it reflective for the hud. http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ight=hud+apply

With the 88-91'*, I would look for an 89-93 GP HUD as the hud trim just goes over the HUD and the shape of the dash is similar. The switch though it a little different and might need to be worked with. I have a picture of them, but my server is still broken.
