I have done something similar with a Suzuki MightyBoy.

Fitted a dash and wiring loom, plus the firewall for good measure, out of a Daewoo Matiz (GM Geo) and whilst it can be done it's heaps of work.

The biggest deal is make sue the 190E is wide enough between the A pillars to fit the dash. Plus make sure it clears the doors when they close.

When I did mine I had to narrow the dash by 52mm and I'm just re-doing this with a Nissan Pulsar dash and it needs 136mm removed. It will happen but expect some headaches.
That’s awesome and all the info I needed, I knew there would be hiccups just like any project, next issue is finding a good gear ratio on a diff, might use a 350z diff, but thanks for the reply

Geez Rod!
Everytime log on, you're doing something new, and radical!
Thought of writing a book? (Although I reckon you wouldn't have time).

Over the last 50 years of driving, yes I'm an old bastard, I've owned 2 non-modified cars.

Both cars were Mercedes ML class SUV's. My current one I added a tow bar but I wouldn't count that as a modification.

I enjoy thinking outside the square and just being different.
