    Love the install shakes. Currently I am gathering parts for my 2000 Cherokee install. Have the PC and Inverter at home, now looking for a cheap screen to play around with. All these Jeep installs in the forum keep me motivated to work on mine.

    I like how you fit the screen for real... it looks very neat and really close to being stock!

    Thanks ... that's the look I was going for.

    I have a few issues with the bondo cracking at the seems of the screen mount ... but I should be able to repair it and keep it from cracking again.

    Other than that it's been solid for over a year.

    Using bondo or are you thinkin' alternatives... maybe Fiberglass??

    it really looks good from the pics though, and I'm feeling the armrest for the PC... If I hadn't gone for a M-ATX board, it would've been one of my options to locate the board as well.

    well the cracks are in the lower corners where the wooden frame that holds the screen comes together ... it cracked once and I repaired it with bondo. It cracked again, but less this time. So I was considering sanding it down to the wood, using small patches of fiberglass over the seams, then bondo. that should do it.

    I did use 'bondo glass' but it still cracked.

    the armrest worked out well ... but I have to be careful leaning on it too hard or I hit the power switch and the PC shuts off :-(

    i just taped them to the rear of the screen housing so they were still connected to the control board but hidden away. also i relocated the ir received to below the steering wheel.

    i don't have this install anymore by the way.

    question, did you move everything on your dash down? because my 2000 grand cherokee is only a din and a half and that looks more like a 2 din.

    Use Dura-Mix when joining bondo to oem plastics, it wont crack. but try to smoothe it out as much as possible before it sets as it is extreemly hard to sand, you can sand it while it is half way set to minimize effort. I suggest practicing a little bit with this before you use it though.
