Still have to do a full custom bezel (never done it before or worked with plastic like that), make some sort of a brace for the radio, add the parking (back and front) sensors and backup camera....

Good luck, it's going to be a long journey! It'll be worth it in the end though, and not impossible. You can keep your door, roof, headlight and possibly the trunk harness, that's about it with these installs.

Paul you do realize you will also have to pull the engine to change the flexplate/flywheel to the 02 style correct? The left (drivers side) cam sprocket also needs to be changed to the 02 also......
BCM ?? unsure ??
