it shouldn't be to difficult just make sure the new cab you buy you have all the info and receipts from the purchase and once you do the swap go to the dot which you may need to go over the pits, once all cleared the body numbers will be logged and you get new rego sticker/papers.

Easy mate, I did a Hilux dual cab in a day start to finish. Only problem is you need a block and tackle that will get the shell high enough to not have to remove the motor or 6+ blokes to help you lift it on, Stripped down as far as possible so kill the weight. Took 4 to lift the dual cab and it was a bitch and a half. Not hard to change it over with the rego when done as Tower Said. Good luck mate

A wagon rebody is different to a wagon to ute cab swap conversion
Wouldnt be asking to many questions on a public forum regarding tag removal or tag swapping or the like,its very very frowned upon
Its classed as a rebirth wether anyone thinks it legal or not
Taking tags is actually classed as illegal,swapping amongst bodies is illegal
Maybe best for assistance from anyone via PM

best thing to do is speak to ur engineer as he will have to blue plate and he will let u know if that cab can be used
