    enlighten me?
    Well i got the bezel and after the official measurment, your 100% right. Maybe if you totally stripped an 8" and did ALOT of shaving you could make it work, but the Lilliput 7" looks like a good fit w/o too much hassle. And, it's much cheaper

    can you take a more head on shot of the dash, as well as a shot of the drivers side kick?

    I'd greatly appreciate it!

    Goooooooooood... cause if you managed to get it in there with little hassle I was going to strangle someone haha... cause I stared at my dash for 2 hours trying to make it possible and it just wasnt happening :P

    Thanks for your interest, but this project is on hold while I do other mods to the car first, namely performance mods. I will pick this back up in the future however.

    Thanks,

    Tight dude! Your setup is very clean, well done! I'm still saving for this install, hoping by Christmas.

    The 8 in is probably a stretch... we did a 7in liliput and shave 2 sides of the bezel down for it to fit right... granted the buttons were on the sides, but still top to bottom it was a tight fit in the bezel... Theres a decent amount of room back there, we actually put the m/b and psu where your manual goes, and mounted the HD behind the screen. Let me know if you have any questions when you resume working on this.
    My purpose in life... to do everything the wifey says too... or atleast thats what she tells me :P
