upgrade to ABS/TRACKS

Looked but could not find it, anybody retrofitted a '92 with a ABS/Tracks system? Thinking about transferring all the stuff from a GTT to a Twinline/TwoTone

I don't remember hearing on here of anyone doing this before. It seems like it would be possible but would be a *lot* of work. I think I'd only undertake it if I was swapping from one car to the other like you are. 

Funnily enough I asked a similar question in 2008:

1987 Volvo 480 ES, 507274, 217 - Red (Ness)
2001 Volvo C70 2.4T convertible (Olivolvo)
2008 Mini Cooper convertible (Mau)

Previous 480's:
