    Hello again - its been a while, but im still here in old Norway, waiting for dry and hot days.
    Thing is, i found an 85 le Baron GTS turbo 1 for sale. Now the car is to old and rusty for me to bother with, but there is a digital dashboard that i have always wanted for my 86 Daytona.
    So does anybody have a feeling if this would be an easy install ?

    #4312654 1984-87 Laser/Daytona are the same

    #4374208 1986-87 H Body

    the car you have pictured is a 4 Door and is an H Body

    the 2 types listed above DO NOT interchange !!!!

    I have 14 of the G Body ones and all have some sort of problems....poor reliability to say the least!

    Usually he digital and analog dashes have different wiring harnesses so you may need wiring pigtails to transplant one.
    At least it's old enough I don't think you have to swap computers to make it work.

    Typically the reliability issues are ancient capacitors on the circuit boards, or cold solder connections. A person with knowledge of electronics can usually handle those issues.

    Yes that is a good tip - reminds me that i actually did this repair myself on my Dodge (Chrysler)Stratus dash some years ago, - i had forgot.
