yeah mate check ive done a vs dash conversion then upgraded that to a vr statesman dash, and also have put a vs ss front on.
my suggestion is if ur considering putting power windows and/or climate control then do a loom upgrade as well so u get all the functions, its possible to keep ur existing ecu and engine loom and you will still have the security functions of that from a hi/lux bcm.
started out but with vn lvl 3 cluster


then vs dash and climate control


at night


now stato dash


outside

wow that looks pretty good. how'd you go about putting the climate control in? was it simply swapping the looms or is there more to it?
and with the front end did everything bolt up or did you have to modify anything or make your own holes?

i have a vs berlina s2 wiring loom in it with my origonal vn manual motor and ecu.. so i had to do a little bit of patch wiring between teh loom and ecu.. then everything from climate to power windows was plug and play.
yeah everything pretty much bolted up ull have to make like 2 holes for the bracket that holds the front of the guards/bumper section. then the headlights were a pretty much fit aside from u couldn't bolt up a few bolts..

yeah if u decide to patch it. keeping ur vn body loom.. the ull have plenty of wires u need to modify for all of the dash.

climate control you have to remove the whole hvac box. which is the big black box behind the dash. like 8 bolts and plug it into ur new loom or patch in 11 wires from ur old loom.
