    This is how I want to make it. Ofcourse with a Opel Astra, and not with a Vauxhall Astra as seen in the picture below.

    I don't dislike the look of the buttons. But then again, everyone with its pleasures

    I like it! - looks like the project is going well for you.

    I like the location that you picked to mount the computer, looks really clean.

    This is exactly what i'm doing right now - mounting the screen in place of the heater vents and the top DIN slot, and moving the HU to the bottom DIN slot.

    Removing the centre console on Astra G is easy, just pull out the head unit and there are two screws on either side of it, pull out the ashtray/cigarette lighter assembly and there are two screws there, and there are some clips around the top u can flip off with a screwdriver. Also, the heater controls have metal clips to flip off. 10 minute job.

    Tutorial for moulding the Lilliput into the centre console here : http://www.cruise24-7.co.uk/tutorials/flushscreen.htm

    It is not amator to ask. It is better to ask how the console is mounted than taking it apart and maybe breaking it. I didn't do is myself yet so I can't explain. But I think the tutorial Phaser2001 posten will help (THNX Phaser2001 ).

    Good luck!

    10x, the tutorial is very good

    I wanted to try yesterday, but I saw there is a hole on the top side inside the small box under the vents , so I took that off first and then the head unit.

    then I had enough space to play with my cables and to do what I wanted ...

    I already moved my HU to the lower slot to see whether it fits. Here some pics:

    Looking good! Perfect fit down there. Do you have another pic shot straight to the HU?

    A photo of the HU can be found in my first post.

    I havn't got a photo straight to the HU that is built in the dash. I'll make one soon and I post it for you.
