  • Need more space for Xenarc

    I just pulled my dash to test fit my monitor, and I came up about 1/4" short of putting my Xenarc into the stock double din headunit space. The top and bottom both have little lips that I should be able to take off to make it fit.
    My question is: What is the best way to remove these lips without destroying my dash piece or needing to clean it up with any fab work? I would like to just cut/sand/whatever the lips off and be able to use it just like that.
    Attached is a pic of the bezel.

    Thats gonna be tough. You'd need mechanical help there to keep it all perfectly even and clean. I can understand your reasoning tho, cuz of the texture of your dash.

    But its gonna be hard. Dremel is the tool of choice for most of us.

      you might consider cutting the top 1/4" of your monitor case off. My Lilliput had about a quarter inch of wasted space in the top. I had to notch a corner to miss a dash bezel mounting clip on my (in progress) install.

      That or see if you can inset the monitor behind those lips...
