Have a look on xfalcon.com

EB Dash is hard.
EF is easier (single Airbag)
AU is probably easier again. The big issue is the way that you decide to do the demister vents - its different from X to E Series (and AU)

There is also a BA Dash there in one project.

Or - Take the wiring, and plant it into an XH dash assembly. its a little custom, but its the latest you get with "easy to bolt in". You should be able to make either the AU Cluster work, or the EF/EL one.

I have NC V8 Wiring (and the Engine, and the Auto) on a XH Dash, with the NC Cluster using an XG Bracket. I think it works

Dont think anyone has done it ......

I know of a E series into Xy

is the AU dash the same width? if it is longer you will have issues
shorter might be ok... as you could do a spacer ont he left and right sides maybe?

its a BIG job regardless
i would be prepared to have the car off the rd for quite some time

what about getting an AU ute donor car
and swapping everything over ie all the wiring and engine etc
might need to adapt the plugs for lights etc?

anything is doable with time and or money

yea i was hoping i could do the conversion without changing engine or anything under the bonnet for that matter. was hoping there would be a few wiring changes and few little snips here and there just to make dash cluster work and even the air control's. :? might be somthing to do later when i do my new engine for her as that will be an AU donk going in i think.
