    If I were you I would get a motorised in dash 1 din unit and mount it upside down so that the screen dropped down when it came out rather than going up

    normal in dash

    That way you get to keep your TT chrome hideaway plate and you dont need to worry about fabrication etc, I dont think you got the space for an in dash build, not unless you go the ghetto route

    I'm trying my best to keep it as clean as possible. While a retractable screen would be easy, it wouldn't look as good and I wouldn't be nearly as happy with it.

    I think with enough elbow grease I'll be ok. I think the hardest part now will be finding a way to match the texture. :/

    I say, paint the whole lower part (the entire section you plan on working on) shiney black, or silver. It would sort of create an accent color I guess, sort of like wood trim, ya know..

    I bet it would come out nice, you can photoChop it to see too.

    goodLuck

    edit: sorry for reviving an old post, but just trying to help the guy if he's still going through with it.

    Upon talking to an installer at Tweeter, he said the trouble would lie in matching the texture when filling in the gaps that this design would leave from the wider stock headunit and the HVAC. Of course the little ridge below the HU will be a challenge as well.

    Is there a way to remove and reattach the outer layer (the textured stuff)? I suppose that would make it pretty easy if I bought a second center piece as well...

    EDIT: That's a 7" screen, by the way.

    There are a lot of textured paints... just keep your plate to a big paint shop and find the one that looks good for you... I did it...
