    Unfortunley, my dash is very diferent from yours so I'm still on the drawing board.



    On top off all, the dash is texturized, so I'm not sure how can i mod it and keep the same stock look.

    BTW, i just try the link you gave and it's not available.

    Squid, very nice instal. My car has grey leather interior also. Do you find it difficult some time to observe your lilliput due to glare off of the seats/interior?

    Thanks!

    The screen is very viewable all the time. Only time you really have problems viewing
    it is if I get direct sunlight coming in onto screen. I think it being a little recessed in the dash
    helps a bit too.

    I guess the key word is recessed, huh? I'm planning to in-dash my lilliput also. I noticed that your side & back windows were tinted. I guess that kinda helps also.

    Thanks for prompt reply.
