The 8" LCD panel just fits in the DD slot width and fits vertically when I remove the cup holder delete panel.How are you doing the custom bezel for the 8 inch screen? My screen is 10 inches, but that required me cutting the dash and fiberglass/plastic resin filling to build the screen in.
So, my idea is to mount the LCD against the existing radio cage. I will add a support brace and simply screw the panel directly to the support brace.
The bezel will be made of either carbon fiber or fiberglass. The bezel will be flat and fit within the existing trim and dash with velcro holding it in place.
If I have room I will install the button board in the bezel to have full functionality.
I want a clean install that looks stock.
So, that is the plan but I have a long way to go before I take the monitor apart and verify the dimensions of the panel. I am working from the technical drawings from Xenarc.
