    take out the stereo, fabricate a screen in its spot, the opening looks big enough, go for a 7"

    You may want to repost your second photo. It is very dark and it makes it difficult to pick up any details in the dash. BTW what size is the standard HU?

    A 7" should be a pretty close fit in your factory stereo spot. GM tends to make their factory stereos just a little bit wider than standard DIN models so you may have to hack up an aftermarket stereo install kit to make it work with no gaps. Does your car have the police package by chance?

    Dwaine, I think you need to take another photo. This one is way out of focus.

    dont forget about the factory HU controling the cars options. my friend has an impala of the same model. local audio guy says you have to buy some control box if you want to remove the HU. =(

    i have an 01 impala, and i housed to screen inside of the pull out thing for the ash tray. i go to school in detroit so i wanted to screen to be hidden while not in use. i wish i had pictures. ill get some soon. anyways, i dremeled out the inside of the sliding part, and mounted the screen face up inside of it. the i cut the middle out around the screen, and put that part on a small hinge. that way you have like a flip down screen, that you can flip back up when you want, and it will look completely stock. its also really good for minimizing glare, because its lower with a little overhang. it is a little more work than i bezel i suppose. but more cool factor. it does look pretty good.

    btw, do you know if there is a way to hook up audio to the stock hu? not to change the subject.
