            Right - that's the "custom" part of custom installing. You'll have to figure out a way to make the screen stay in by possibly fabricating something. I've seen people use wood because it's easy to work with. I've seen metal brackets, I've see people epoxy them in.

            It's going to depend on your particulars. Check the finished projects section for cars like yours and if there is one, see if there's detail on how they did it. If not, PM that person and ask how they did it.

            Or...get creative! I'm sure you can figure something out!

            And sometimes if you post pictures of your dash and ask people to evaluate your plan for securing the screen they'll give you some feedback on ways to do it.
