I think you answered your own question - use your m8 that is handy with fibre glass and body filler! Also look in the "fabrication" forum for more ideas. Good luck
Any Body Have Any Ideas Of Where To Mount A Screen In An E36 Bmw Coupe, I Have Removed The Crappy Onboard Computer Thing And The Compartment Beneath It, Plenty Of Space But How Do I Flush Fit The Moniter? I Have A Mate Who Is Pretty Handy With Fibre Glass And Filler.
search for e36 or bmw, you can fab up a screen mount (what i am doing and someone else has already done, can't remember user name though, its also on bimmerforums.com) or you can get a monitor that has a headrest shroud and just use that to fill the gap, look at the work enforcer has done, he has some good stuff and is working on some as well
