e46 BMW TFT and DVD in dash
UPDATE--- Finished pic:
I know you e46 guys will say there isnt enough room, but I managed to make it work.
The trick is that I had to recess the screen about an inch and a half(which also blocks sunlight) and then the unused part of the TFT screen can actually be placed below the dash line, and then there is the EXACT amount of room above it to fit the dvd-rom drive...
As you can see I started with a din adapter from cardomain.com, so that I didnt have to make my own mounts... I also had to significantly chop the plastic peice that is behind the dash (which is a $25 dollar part to replace, no biggie) this peice is completely removeable, you just gotta YANK on the vents to free it.
Here is some pictures of the work so far, this is after the follwoing steps...
1. Chop plastics of Xenarc frame and removable dash peice
2. epoxy them together in the right place, checking fitment all along.
3. build a wood frame to recess the screen(then check fitment)
4. bondo the smaller gaps and uneven surfaces(once again, check fitment)
5. ruff sand...
Things yet to do...
6 more filler and sanding
7 priming and painting
