    Yeah i was thinking the same thing maybe i could get the bezel so i can get my dash back in a bit but i still cant decide on what TS i am going to get i keep looking at the price of the 7in. Xenarc and the 8in. Lilli and i keep reading daily looking for the Holy Grail of posts saying Exactly what one is better for my type of install, so far i keep finding the Xenarc and that is what i figured by the price. Guess im just trying to skimp and on the screen of all things i just need to fess up the money and get this car back together.

    Last question - do you find that the screen is at a good height being under the AC vents? Are the AC controls accessible being at the bottom?

    I have a 5 spd and hope that the AC controls won't be too bothersome down there. Actually, thinking about it I only drive my stang in the summer, and the windows are down so
    It shouldn't be a bother with the AC on the bottom. Before I tore my dash apart I had the stock CD player down there and I was always using the CD player. If I could fit a CD down there, adjusting the AC controls isnít a problem and I use the heater a lot with the top down.

    My original plan was to use the 2001+ bezel with the double din on the bottom but I did some tests and I found out that it is to cumbersome to use the screen with my automatic shifter. When the car is in park the clearance is very small from the shifter and the screen and my knuckles would hit the touch screen constantly when I place the car in park. Iím guessing that might be a problem with a stick shift as well. This isnít a problem with the 2 single din that came with my 2000 mustang cause the Bottom CD Din is a deeper set compared to the double din that is placed forward more towards the shifter. Also the position is too low for my liking. I wanted to have the screen be high enough to be visible when my top down. You canít build a PC in your car without showing it off. All in all I prefer to have the AC on the bottom. Theyíre not that attractive anyway so might as well stick them in the bottom.

    Go for the Xenarc 7 in. The 8 in will give you a little more display but trying to fit it in the center console is going to be tricky and probably wonít fit nicely. Also depends on what else you are going to add to the front bezel. Forget the 8 in if you want the CD-Rom in the front like mine, there wonít be enough room. For me it was a very tight fit just getting the 7 in. screen and CD-Rom in there. I placed the Screen as close to the top as possible and placed the CD-Rom just below it and it still didnít run flush with the plastic horizontal plastic plane the runs from the top of the AC controls to the bottom of the CD-Rom. I had to cut into it about 2 inches so that my CD-Rom wood case would fit. Dropping the CD-Rom any lower and you wonít be able to get to the AC controls.

    Well the stang has been on hold for many reasons mainly cause it wasnt running. So now i got all the time in the world to do it cause i bought a little beater car to get me by. After looking at millions of cars the wife talked me into getting a 2006 Suzuki Aerio sx so i can keep the stang stripped down till shes all ready to finish up. No more taking something out for a few hours only to put it back in so i can go here or there.

    Sorry to her about your impotent truck. I doubt a new car is going to pop out of the Cavalier in 9 months. Keep at that mustang. It'll be well worth it when you are done. Here is some motivation for that fire thats been reduced to embers.

    Did you ever get around to taking any pics of how the AC panel is bolted in there? I have some 90 degree brackets that will work, but wouldn't mind a visual of where the bracket is attached to on the car...

    Cheers!

    Na, I installed a rear cam last weekend, but It didn't require me to take off the dash. I could pop it off and take a few pics. I'm in the process of moving though so it might not be anytime soon. I admit the way I did it was a hacked up way and theres probably a better way to do it.
