Just to give you an idea of what I'm faced with:
As you can see, the stereo sits where the top half of the screen will be. I want to remove the ash tray and lighter, and shunt everything down about 2 or 3 inches. Trouble is, as it's an older car, the dash isn't very "modular", and I'll have to cut through the faux leather that separates the heater controls from the stereo. How would I be able to mimic the texture once I've cut through it? I've got a feeling that the "leather" is a film stuck onto the dash, so I guess I could peel it back a bit first and then cut the dash out, then stick the film back down around the cut area.
I think i'll start a work log...........!
So no-one has ever done this to a MK3 before then? I've seen the crazy install a guy did with an 11" screen, but that's a bit too much for me!
