    yeah just have the bottom sticking down, If you fab a nice surround it wont matter. It you cut the bottom of the HU surround you could make a nice big double din space and put an epia in there. Or jsut have an epia underlsung in a nice case.

    Ok, that's an idea, but it would get kinda blocked by the gear stick, not too much of a problem, but would also have to extend the fold down cover... anyone have any other modding ideas?

    That is a nasty dash.

    Ok suggestions.

    1. Relocate switches next to air vents. Block air vents and build a screen surround above that space.

    2. There is no 2

    3. Get a different car.

    4. Remove whole centre, build your own from scatch.

    5. Wear shoes when taking photos. (socks look naf)

    6. Cut into dash beyond the air vents and build surround there.

    7. Relocate HU to Glove box, move and rotate heater controls to where HU is. Move and rotate airvents to where heater controls are now, then build screen above where air vents were/are.

    phew thats it for now.

    IDEA 2: mak a screen pod recessed into the dash by removing the right vent and moving the switched to somewhere like that area indicated.

    RED colour shows the pod enclosure (Don't laugh - am at work using paint and am about to go home to work on my dash)

    The little inset pic is fromt he side and shows the screen set back from the front edge (agaisnt the dark upper dash) but set down low to get it in a better position.

    EDIT: blue dotted line shows the position of the screen so it forms an 'L'shaped cutout from the sloping dash.

    Would be pretty easy for someone to rip off and rob though, would ideally like some cover for it, so its nice and inconspiciuous + secure, Also, what is the space like behind the fan conrols / clock, If i relocated those, I could get a motorised indash touch screen in there nicely if its deep enough? anyone know?
