    What would you guys do here? (pics)

    I am planning my screen install now. I have attached pics of the space that i have and the bracket from the stock radio. I need to figure out how I should attach the screen so that it is somewhat sturdy, and preferably use the stock radio brackets to do it.
    Any suggestions would be awesome!!

    The first picture shows the 4 mounting screws for the stock brackets. The second is a pic of the brackets, and the 3rd shows the space from the bracket to where the front of the screen should be.

    How about a piece of sheet metal bent into a "C" shape? One side of the C attaches to the radio brackets, the other side to the other brackets. That gives you a metal frame that will loop across where your HU is now, to mount the screen to.

    Thats a thought... the Xenarc has that thing on the back so I could drill a couple holes and mount it that way. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Anyone else have any ideas?
