    dash

    Yeah, that's precicely why I want my extra one. For a backup.

    Actually, I'll probably use the extra one to hack away at and keep my original one in the closet, but same difference.

    I need to shop around and see if I can find one locally. The 2000 - 2005 are all the same, so maybe...

    With your screen so far up and away, isn't it a little annoying to have to lean forward and reach for your screen?

    OK, nm. I just looked at the pics. The screen is down, the deck is up. hmm

    I'm not sure how I like that. It's an option though, it seems to work well for you...

    My problem now though, is that a replacement dash piece from the dealer is $150. ouch.

    And I'm not finding them on eBay... any ideas?
    I can't see the picture, but I think "front console" is the part you need. Maybe IE will show the image but it didn't show in FF. http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...=1&catalogid=2

    Half the price of the dealer, and could probably find cheaper elsewhere too. I got my replacement dash from eBay. I think it was like $20 + $10s/h. Not bad because it came with all the little knobs and dials too!

    eBay is your best bet... Just keep looking for the next week or two. Visit some local junk yards, visit some mitsubishi forums where people are parting out their wrecked car and grab up a dash.

    And flip-outs are not very slick at all...

    its actually not a problem, same distance as if the HU was still there. also im 6'3" so i dont think i would have a problem anyways, however my fiance is 5'6" and she doesnt either, i think its pretty much in the perfect spot. The only thing is my HU being located where the clock is supposed to be, its kinda out of reach but i have the remote so i never reach for it anyways...

    2k1Toaster: I've been to that trade motion site before as well and the pictures never have worked for me either. I think their site is broken.

    david69leonard: Yeah, I corrected myself. The screen is easy, the deck is a little weird. I have a remote as well, but my steering wheel controls will be working when I'm done anyway, so I won't even need the remote really.

    Maybe that might work. I really like the compass and temp though...

    The wire that connects to it is pretty long, you might be able to move it to that little cubby under the console. I think mine had a compass too, never really paid much attention.

    Sorry, I just google'd for a pic and snagged it from there, didn't know who's it was.

    I've got plenty of my own now that I've had my car for a few months and have plenty of work done... *smile*

    Well actually I had been searching for "2004 mitsubishi eclipse" and I was coming up with some pictures, but none of the interior and none of my color. Mostly spyders too. Then I searched for "2004 eclipse" and got all moon and sun actual eclipse pictures. Somewhere among my searches however, I eventually came upon your interior picture.

    For all the searching I did that day, yours was the only picture that I found that was of the interior and was the correct year. It was just a bonus that it was the right color as well.
