  • LCD Placement idea for cougar

    I'm getting ready to start my fabrication/install process. Just curious if any cougar owners (or anyone for that matter) has an opinion on the placement of my screen. Attached is a picture of my car's interior. I want to move the heater controls(the yellow arrow) down to where the radio currently is, and put the 7" screen in its' place. There's room, but there's a 2" lip that sticks out.

    I want to put it here because it's a little easier to read when it's eye level. I find the current radio placement too low. I would just like some ideas before I start the work. It's a big job, and I can't really picture what it'll look like until it's done. Any ideas?

    Werd up fellow cougar brother.

    Good luck in that location. It will get alot of sunlight their although it is the bes location. If you have good fabrication skills i would say go for it. i attached a pic of mine.

    Let me know any questions.

    There are a few other cougar owners here although i was the first

      After taking apart the dash and making cardboard templates and measuring, I think I'll do what you and Savante did. There's just no room (atached pic). I just despise that location. I used to have a clarion flip up lcd (The vrx-xx71, i don't remember), and It was a pain to drive( I have a stick....no room). Although this will be flush mounted, It's just too low for my tastes. Have you had any problems in that location?

        Hey man, I used to have a Cougar until somebody decided to run a red light and take it away from me (not that I am bitter since I have an RX-8 now) Take a look at my setup below.

        I loved this car!!

            Nice Idea for that locatoin all though the fabrication work needed a little bit more finishing work

                The fabrication in mine needed more finishing work....little confused on your comment...
                That screen looked like it came in the car, pic is kinda bad though.

                  sorry to be a hater here but a third gen mazda RX7 can take an 8.

                  anyway back on topic.
                  id think that putting it where youd like to would need alot of fab work and might not be worth it.

                    Draxin, you're right. It wasn't worth it. I went ahead and put it where the stock radio was. So, the fabrication and paint is completed. Just working on the final details. It does take time to get used to not having buttons to change songs,volume,etc.

                      WOOHOO! Another cougar owner.

                      I have a 99 atx I am currently converting to mtx from a donor 98 tour se.

                      I think you should mold the screen where the 2 center vents are, but not like the one above. The screen going into the dash is dumb. Do it like the pick in the next post.
