If you have the donor car, then it should only take you 4-5 hours.
yes, EVERYTHING lines up.
If your GLi has ABS brakes, then all you need to replace is the Dash loom (including its BEM and headlight switch etc etc.

If NO ABS, then you'll need to run a few wires in the engine bay for ambient sensor.

Otherwise its a straight swap.

You DO NOT need to replace the heaterbox OR discharge the Gas in the AC.
you can add the blend door motor to the GLi heaterbox with a little ingenuity,

and YES, its much easier to change the dash wiring, rather than add 50 wires.
