I hacked my centre air vents out and made my Alpine double DIN unit fit H:

Must get some plastic sheet to finish it off although the gaffer tape I am filling the hole up with does look unique:cool:

Kool!! :cool:

Was thinking of rather than going upwards to make space go downwards!!

Do you have any pics so I can see what it looks like??

Cheers!! :ILU:

ITS QUITE DIFFICULT YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE DASH AND REPOSITION THE CENTRE SUPPORT WHICH RUNS BEHIND AND WOULD CATCH THE LOWER PART OF THE UNIT AND THEN WELD A NEW ONE IN THEN REBUILD AND IT WOULD THEN GO IN FINE
ITS BEEN DONE AND WE HAD ONE IN BITS THIS WEEK NOT A BAD JOB.
OTHER OPTION IS THERE IS A FEW AFTER MARKETS WHICH HAVE A DOUBLE DIN SCREEN WITH A SINGLE UNIT BEHIND (BMW USE ON IN 3 SERIES) THIS GOES INTO HOLE AND SCREEN DOESNT TAKE UP AS MUCH ROOM SO NO NEED TO ALTER CENTRE SUPPORT. WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR AN HEAD UNIT TO SUIT ILL LET YOU KNOW IF WE GET OUGHT WHICH LOOKS RIGHT.
