Put an HS-60 into a 106 chassis?

Probably a stupid question, but I would assume this can be done unless there are physical size differences in some of the internal parts. Then I'd have a nice new 106 without the price tag.

Because if you had one of each, both of which were used for spare parts, you'd rather have it in a 106 body if possible.

The transformer and some boards like the jack/chorus board are different. I have some spare 106 parts if you want to get the ones that are different.
