      And if you're wondering, YES, that is the Starvision headrest shroud molded into the dash bezel. The faceplate for the slimeline slot-load SR-8185-C DVD is also molded in. It screws in from the back-side. The DVD snaps right in and snaps right out, for when I'm parking in "shady" areas.. ;-)

              I see you took out the center AC registers..

              that might be okay where you live, but socal that isnt an option

                looks real nice. too bad there isnt a quick disconnect on the USB for the TSK so you could have a fully "de-tatchable" faceplate....

                        Do you mean the screen snaps out or the DVD? If not, i'm curious as to why you didn't mold that in the screen as well...

                          Stellar installation, very well executed. Awesome job. That's all I have to say.

                          =)
                          There's nothing you can't do, so don't be discouraged just because no one else's done it.

                              Wow...is there a similar shroud that will work for Xenarc screens?
