Lightbulb shell integrity swap question

what shell characteristics should avoid when considering vehicle for entire driveline swap? will high mileage (150,000 miles + ) bodys hold up or is that something to stay shy of?
i searched around looks like some say that even high mileage GC shells can withstand wrx swaps.
would I want to just take it to the local subaru body shop and have them inspect it?

What do you mean by withstand the swap? The chassis isn't going to fall apart.

My car has about 160,000 miles on the chassis, 14,000 with the WRX drivetrain installed.

that is exactly what i mean.
usually when observing cars that are nearing 10 years in age, one can see that the wheel wells, floor panels, as well as other parts of the car literally deteriorate. i dont see this one this particular chassis - but i am by no means an expert. better to check it out now than to find it out later - when its too late.
