    He is not wasting your time or money, so why do you care? Since when is it yor call? Let him do whatever he wants. I am so sick of people telling other people what that can do with their own cars. He wanted suggestions on his setup, not some stupid remarks from you and kirbycope.

    I agree. And it is just a '94 Buick. So what if he messes up the dash. I don't think he's planning on a high resale value. IMO, better to work the bugs out on an old car, rather than mess it up on a new.
    To your question.
    I don't think you'll be able to move you heater controls, but I might be wrong. Those look like the old type of controls which use rods connected to flaps to control everything. An easy way to tell is when you switch from floor to defrost, you can actually hear the thump of the vent closing. You may get away with it though, as your not moving them far. Problem is, your more than likely going to get binding. My suggestion would be to dismantle the dash area, move the controls down to where you hope to have them, duct tape the hell out of them so that they don't move, and see if the controls still work. This way you haven't butchered your dash yet.
    I'd say, just by looking, you'd be better off to move your head unit down, and leave the heater contols in place. I would have to say that it's not the best place for you HU, too low to get at without taking your eye's off the road, but if you know your controls well, you can do it by feel, and it's only until summer.
    Just my 2 cents!
    Good luck and let us know what you end up doing.
    There is no such thing as gravity, the world just sucks!!!
