    I think I'm already in too deep though. I have a Pioneer head, Alpine Type R's for both front and back, JBL mono and a 4 channel amp and a diamond sub. And I have to rerun new speaker wires. Sigh. I just bought a monitor too. OH WELL. big *** task headed my way i suppose. Im going to have to mount the head into the glove box.

    Hey can you let me know how you mounted the screen, that is my biggest setback right now. Any information would help me alot. Especially how you have a bezel around the screen (custom fab?). Thanks for any info.

    Right now I just have the main screen working and I'm doing the playlist. I also added Zoro's logo plugin to display cover art, speed, direction and a few other things. I would say I'll be done with the whole skin in a couple months, I work on it every few days. Racer X, once done I'm sure I'll post it somewhere and try to remember to notify you as well. EM

    Everything about that screen mounting is custom. If you have a 1998-2001 Prelude I can be of help, if not, you really just have to do a lot of thinking before you start cutting things away. Let me know.

    Yeah I also have a 98 prelude. I was trying to go for a double din kit and fit a lilliput but I'd rather get an 8 in and custom fab like yours. You made it so clean, I want to do the same.

Just wanted to put up some pics and say thanks to all that have posted their little tricks and stuff about products to use and ideas. Any questions on anything just let me know. E.M.





    I was trying to make it look as stock as possible.



    Start of the skin I'm going to be using, takes a lot of hints from the stock stereo I just took out. I haven't made my decision on the front end yet.

    Hi, I am new to mp3car but I was impressed with your work and I decided to do the same. So I bouhgt the screen 8" dynamix but I am having a problme trying to fit it in the console. I am wondering if you had to modify the center bezel (console) so that the screen can fit. Also did you use the original bracket (metal) and how did you mount the screen (glue, bolt)? Please advice. Thanks,

    You are going to need to modify the stereo bracket and the black bezel. Get the Dynatron bumper repair stuff. You gotta have this or it just won't work. Trick is getting the monitor mounted in the stereo bracket THEN adjusting the bezel to work. This lets you pull the molding piece without the monitor for adjustments. I'll make a detailed instruction set for you on how I did it. In the mean time look at the first page of this post and see what I did to the stereo bracket. You are really going to have to modify the monitor quite a bit but I have pictures for you that will help. The black molding and the bezel are really easy once the monitor is in position, it just takes some patience. Also, I'll get you the paint I used. It's really held up well and looks totally stock. Please be patient when you are doing this, it's not something to just throw together and expect good results, measure twice and cut once, blah blah all that stuff. Get you more info shortly. EM

    Can I just say that your screen looks amazing! So much better then molding the screen with the bezel. I have the same gen prelude and use the liliput 7inch and I can only wish mine looked that stock. I never thought of using the mounting kit, I have always tried to mount it directly to the bezel. I am going to try that way tomm as soon as I get a new mounting kit like that. Thanks for the idea! Do you by any chance have any more pics of your mounting process. Thanks!

    Where are you located by the way if you dont mind me asking?
