Which 12" PB Parts are Compatable

I currently have a 12" PB model A1010, which is in great cosmetic shape, but is obviously getting a bit slow.

I am currently bidding a 12" PB model #A1104 which is functioning properly, but, is in dire condition cosmetically, among a few other issues.

My question is, is the casing interchangeable between the A1010 and the A1104. Also, the Power plug, on the A1104 is not great, So I was curious as to whether or not, this could easily be changed as well. Not the DC-DC board, just the plug.

My thought was to replace the innards of the 867 frame with the 1.5 GHZ, using the screen, and power adapter from the earlier version.

This is my first time experimenting, any help would be great. Thanks.

Sorry but you can't swap parts between the 867Mhz and the 1.5Ghz models.

Ben Eisenman posted a great answer for a similar question.

Is doing a 867MHz to 1GHz G4 logic board upgrade possible?

I'm not 100% sure, but I'm pretty sure that models A1010 and A1104 are the same machine with just different chips. iFixit's device page (PowerBook G4 Aluminum 12" 1-1.5 GHz Repair) gives instructions on how to replace most parts, and uses the same info for both devices, which in my mind would imply that they have the same body.

Hope that helps.
