    How do I fit my 10.4" LCD screen in my Ford Mondeo 98?

    Hi. I am wondering if one of you might give me some tips on how to do this. The only requests I have is that the screen is mounted steady and that it's vertical and horizontally correct, I would also prefer not to make too many holes and stuff in the car. In my previous car I didn't care this much about the looks so I simply drilled holes in the car and the screen and mounted it with plastic-clips (it's stuck like glue, but doesnt look very good).

    The screen came with a mounting bracket, but even if I manage to mount the bracket to the car with absolutely no slack, there would still be enough slack between the mount and the screen to make the screen bounce back and forth when I press it. So what I am looking for is a solution where all four courners of the screen has a solid foundation on the car interiour. How would you guys solve this without taking out the interiour and casking your own fiberglass mold? :P All I'm asking for is that it's stable and looks a little okay (means no dutch tape :P)

    Flip down maybe, that's the only way I can think of that it would look good...

    Shouldn't this be in the Fab sub forum?

    Can we tie our hands behind our backs too?

    Just looking at it, I would take take out the deck, the cup holder/ash tray or maybe its nothing?(under the hvac above the deck) and relocate those buttons below the deck and mold the screen in there. It looks like one piece you could take out. But again Im just looking at your picture, and that looks like the easiest way to go with no duct tape and not taking out the whole dash.
