Folks, I want to swop my Vigo (D/C V6 A/T) and (S/C 2.7 M/T) bodies and load bins over onto each others chassis'.
So the end result will be a Vigo (S/C V6 A/T) and (D/C 2.7 M/T).

Given that the chassis, motor, wiring and drivetrains will remain with each motor - will the bodies fit onto each others chassis, or are there chassis mods (like body mount points) to be done?

Other than the licensing issues (where a S/C is now a D/C and vice versa) - are there any other considerations?
