  • Grand Am lcd mounting

    I have a 8" lilliput lcd and a 1993 pontaic grand am. I cant figure out where to mount the lcd. I dont want to do anything that will be permanent such as cutting the dash. I will try to take pictures if you need them. I also have a motorized hu that i want to keep. Any ideas? Thanks for the help!

    First off, male sure that your HU has inputs (AUX port).

        I don't think stock head units are motorized, especially from a "1993 pontaic grand am"

                    you want to put an 8" screen in that!!!! Good luck!!!

                    COuld do with a better shot of the centre to see what is below the heater controls. Am thinking you could mavbe move the HU down below the heater controls (anlged up a bit) and take out the vents and put the screen where the vents and HU currently are. If you want centre vents you could then mount some round top mount ones ontot he top of the dash tapping into the air ducts.

                      You could move the A/C controld down to the spot under where it is now.

                      Then put the 8" LCD where the A/C and HU re right now.

                      For the HU you could have it pu in the glovebox or under the seats then mount just the face plate somewere like above the rear view mirror?

                      People have used cat5E cable to allow the control of the HU from above the rearview mirror or on the side piller between the door and windscreen.

                      Only problem is your HU is motorised so its not that helpful moving it

                      You wont be able to get a 8" LCD in there without cutting or remove stuff from the dash.

                      Only thing i can think of is having the LCD flat on the dash abov the vents so u angle it up so its behind the vents but still viewable.

                      Thats all i can think of

                        Remove the center dash vents.

                          I dont want to do any permanent modifications to the dash at all so all that is out. I have the original bracket and want to mount that somewhere. I used to have it mounted just above the hu and hiding the HU. but since my new one is motorized and i want it showing i cant mount it their anymore.
