Yesterday I bought an 08 Volvo S40 R-Design. I am wanting an install but from what I can see only have two choices, either a motorized single DIN touchscreen or fabricate something in the console. However I have never fabricated anything before and really not very good with my hands, so very nervous about it or would most like have to for get the install.

I don't know where to start on this or the process? I would think maybe to measure the position of where a screen might go, as if that is too small then it is a non starter! after that maybe try and get hold of another console from a scrap yard to take apart and find out how it is put together and use for parts maybe during fab.
