But yeah, otherwise, real similar;)
It can be done, has been done. But you have to really want it.

About 100x easier to just swap the trans into the loyale.
The point is that the body of the '89 GL is in much better condition with very little rust, original paint, and no dents. The Loyale, well, has plenty of rust, is 3 or 4 different colors, and bears the scars of a collision with a $95K Porsche 996 targa turbo. (now THAT's another story... suffice it to say that I drove home, the Porsche didn't.)

I was ready to fight the ticket in court-- had witnesses and everything, but it ended up being dismissed on a technicality and does not appear on my record. My insurance company settled with the Porsche owner, and I (tried to) put it all behind me.
