Re: Smartlock retrofit into an EA - question?
I kinda figured that... steering column surround would be replaced anyways to get the steering column light, so the antenna (assuming that's where it is) would go in anyway.
If I did buy a wreck, I'd probably transplant just about everything.
Dash, all electrics, obviously, drivetrain probably wouldn't be touched (better the devil you know)
The idea would be to wait and find one that has had a massive rear-end impact, or a fairly bad t-bone, preferably a statutory write-off. Cheaper to buy, and wouldn't have any impact on the electrics.
I don't really know what would be left over, but there'd be lots out of my existing car, but who really wants ea gl stuff?
It'd be a case of me taking time of work, stripping down the wreck to remove everything I want, then seeing whats left and ditching it.
But we're probably talking about 6 months down the track.
