So I acquired a totalled 97 z24. The interior in my 2000 needs replaced. I want to use the interior from the 97 but I noticed that the 97's dash is shorter then my 2000s. Obviously I would need to move the radio and HVAC around. Does anyone know if I take the entire dash from the 97 will it bolt up to the 2000?
fit and work are 2 different things
fit yes work no
radio opening is differnent and 00+ cluster doesn't fit in. you can't use the 97 cluster and vise versa in a 2000+
thats for the lower dash othere then that everything else will work

I don't think my original post was worded correctly. I'm not going to change just the bezel I'm going to change the big plastic dash piece as well. I know I'll have to relocate the AC/heat switches & the head unit around. Seems pretty straight forward but before I spend the better half of a Saturday working on this I want to make sure the entire dash will bolt up in the same place as the 2000's dash.
I admit buying a new bezel would be easier but if modding cars was easy everyone would do it
gotcha. I'll just order a new bezel off ebay for like 40.00. The rest of the interior will fit perfectly, correct?
