Cluster Swap 04 to 05 style

Pardon if this has been beat to death...

I know it might not be as high speed as some of hte others i have read on here (converting to 08 and 2011 interiors) but I was wondering if I can buy an 05+ cluster off Ebay and plug and go in my 04? I just like the 05 style better than in my current one.

Are the dash covers (the front piece that holds the switches and radio) the same as well.

I wouldn't say that If little Chinese guys can swap s2000 gauges into old 90 era civics swapping a 4 year newer dash and cluster like the 08 Would be nothing let alone 1 year newer. Maybe someone on here can share the wiring diagrams

the fitment might be an issue around the edges.

with my 06 dash and 04 cluster the edgs on the sides are covered up slightly (where water in fuel light etc is)

its a wiring challenge and if your up for it then im sure many would love to hear it. most just dont have the time like myself
