you could if you have the time and the money, but you will find the EF/EL dash will fit same with the seats and the door trims.

A Very very big job to make a AU dash fit. EF/EL bolt in easy.

the dash isn’t the same shape as the one in the EB, that is the biggest problem.

The AU dash has a bigger curve than the eb.

Biggest problems you WILL find is,

Length and curvature of AU dash,
Mounting points.
Plug connections (different style of plug and wire locations within the plugs).

Just to name a couple.

The reason I know the above, is I have AU wiring Eng and dash wiring in my EB going into a EL dash.

I'm pretty sure the seats don't just bolt in.

the bacvk seat will, but you need to weld the rear feet of you're eb runners on the back of the ef/el and wel 2 small plates at the front and drill dols in plate to bolt them in.
