Default Converting a shorty baggage car to passenger car

Hey all,

I've got a LGB shorty baggage car that I use for battery cars (LGB 30050) and I would like to leave the electronics in it and replace the body with a LGB shorty passenger car so it would look like a passenger car with 5 windows rather than a baggage car with just one door on each side (this is for a cog railroad where I'd like to only have one car plus the loco). Is this easily doable with removing a few screws and swapping the bodies?

I've found the LGB user guides for each and can see the exploded diagrams but and it looks possible but the way my day has gone, my wife said to ask someone first!
