Post dash swap monte ss into a malibu

Hey, I'm new here but not to hotrodding. I have a 79 bu 350,t5 tranny and 410 posi.My question is
can you do this successfully with all of the ss
guages working? I have the complete dash and the firewall to dash harness the donor car was sold before I could buy the rest of the wiring harness from the firewall to the engine bay. Do I need to find that car or can I buy a reproduction of the
firewall-out harness? Any help would be great!

ps.Just wondering how all of the Malibu builders
in the magazines are finding good interior parts. Thanks, Jon

I did this in a 78 Malibu Barbie wagon. I ended up changing the sending units as well, but it sure looks groovy now! Before you finish, drive your kids to school one day with NO dash, that freaks them out!

I think that I would mount thet Monte SS dash in the 'Bu but I would make my life a lot simpler and use aftermarket gauges. They aren't as expensive as you think they are and you will run all new wiring and senders.
That's just me though...I'm no resident expert
Later,
