I was in an accident yesterday and it completely totalled the chassis.
Where I was hit
Trunk won't close
But everything mechanical still works. My buddy is GIVING me his rolling chassis, but it's an auto.
I've read a few threads about swapping, but I was thinking I could swap all the wiring, the ecu and all the other components over and call it a day.
Or is there something I'm missing? I know it's not worth doing on a normal basis, but what about this situation?
Am I just over thinking it? Or will it be "easy" because I have everything.

This is the main resource I've found. I am good with mechanical stuff but wiring is not my friend. But I have friends who will help that are. So, I am not sure if the swap will work even if I swap over all the wiring?
Hopefully this can help shed some light on what's needed from my perspective and any one that knows more than I can help figure it out so I can make a good plan.
Thanks in advance!
