One stock door card was messed up, and the window controls didnt clear. I have RS door cards in the mail.

The dash is definitely not required for the swap. It requires a good bit of modification to get it to fit, however it does simplify a lot of the wiring.

Just a little FYI... the dash swap doesn't really simplify wiring much, it just spreads it out all over the car.

Looking good anyway.

Haha well you'd know better than I. I figured splicing taillight and window control connectors would be easier than wiring in a dash. The RS door cards should be here monday

Lol this is an old thread, this is my first GC swap. This car has since been hit and totalled (grrr), and I re-swapped the guts into my current car, the Khaki one.

The dash setup came with the donor WRX for the swap. There are some pictures of its installation into the new car in that thread, which you can find pretty easily if you search my user name on this website.
