Housing swap possible maybe?

Dear ones

I have a Space Gray 1.1 8 GB RAM 256 SSD version and a Gold 1.3 8 GB RAM 512 SSD version of these systems.

Is it possible just to switch housings so I have a space gray 1.3 with 512 SSD? :-)

Thank you

While its technically possible to swap the logic boards. I'm not sure if its worth the risks if you've never opened one of these systems.

Here's the IFIXIT guide: Retina MacBook 2015 Logic Board Replacement.

one more question..as the battery life is also not the same..is that also possible to switch?..i see there is somekind of a guid but not shure if it is the correct one cause it says at the end “ The battery should not be re-used or reinstalled after removal.”?
