Dash wiring

So I'm doing a 1991 mustang 4 cylinder (red car) to 5.0 swap. The 5.0 parts car which is gray (also a 1991) was a 4 cylinder swap to begins with. The gray car has manual windows and manual locks. The red car I would like to swap to has power windows and power locks. Although the red car is almost spot less inside and out, it's missing the dash and the wiring harness for the dash is Butchered. The parts car has a prefect dash with a working harness. My question is can I swap the harness and dash with out running in to problems because of the power windows and locks? Are there different harness for interiors for power options? Would it be easier to try to salvage the harness that's already in the red car? I want to keep the power options. Any ideas or thoughts would be helpful!

If my memory serves me correctly there is an independent wiring harness that runs right below where the dash bolts up near the wind sheild that is part of the power window harness. Follow the connectors from the door harness back and see how they connect. I done it before on a 1988 car but its been 15 years plus. Most of the harness is inside the power doors already. The hardest part if your not using the power window doors is transferring and lining up the track correctly into the manual doors.

Swap the harness from the car with power stuff. The only harness you will need from the v8 car is the engine harness. Good that they are both 91s btw or youd run into issues. The 91s use a 1 year harness.
