    Here is the bezel trim piece, you will have to cut the tabs off completely

    Nice, so I understand how much of the sides has to come off - a lot. Basically so there's no 90 degree turn down the side, just the frame on the front. But what about the top and bottom? The top is real thin as it is and the bottom has those buttons. How can you shave it down there?

    You remove the buttons!

    You can relocate them or put the ir receiver in the vents or somewhere so the remote still works to simulate the buttons.

    Exactly, dont worry about the buttons. I have my IR reciever mounted in the left vent and I just point the remote so you dont need the buttons, they serve no purpose at all if you have the remote.

    To get an idea of how much to remove from the top and bottom, just do test fits as you chop the plastic off, or just take some measurements of the opening and cut the bezel accordingly, thats what I did.

    I would defenitely go with 2k1toaster said and remove the buttons, the remote works just as well. Just don't lose the remote!

    How did you extend the wire to the IR receiver?

    its pretty long already, shouldnt need to extend it at all. The IR wire in my xenarc was about 9 inches, plenty long enough to run up to the air vent. Make sure that you make a deep cut out on the bottom of the vent so that when you put the entire piece back into the car, it will clear the vent outlets.

    9 inches? My IR is about 5 miilimeters from the bottom of the screen, is there some slack behind the screen I didn't see or something? I have the TSV. Maybe you can pull it out, I might have just not noticed.

    I got all the curled edges cut off the screen bezel, think it needs to come in even more than that? There's a Xenarc stamp on the bottom of the bezel, did you cut below or above that?
