        do you want to put a flip out screen or mount an actual screen there that doesnt move? i had a clarion vrx935vd and its a 7" flip up, never had a problem with flipping it out as long as the car wasnt in 3rd gear. its a hot unit too....

          No, Not a flip-out, I wanted one permantly mounted in, like a headrest screen for example.

                the opening is approx. 6.5 inches wide by 4 inches high.

                    how custom do you want to get? the sky is the limit if you're willing to do some fabrication. I'm in the process of molding in a 7" wide screen in the same spot (just gotta figure out where i'm gonna put the head unit). If you don't mind chopping up the factory mounts/ console, i've seen up to a 10" screen there.. thought it would be wild to do a touch screen to controll everything there, but then i saw the price tag (YIKES)
                    if ya need help getting it in, lmk.

                      I took the cheap way out to mount my LCD screen:




                      I just took out the mirror, drilled two holes through the visor, and attached two mounting screws through it to the screen. Has held up pretty well, and gets the job done.

                      Just my two cents

                        My friend actually took out his ac front vents to put his screen and eq there.. it looks rerally cool and authentic cause on one really does that... so thats an option i guess if you don't mind losing the front middle vents

                          what size screen did your friend fit in?

                              Yah it's a Lilliput, lol. Mad cheap from China or wherever. 7.2" with remote and all the needed cables/electrical stuff for $88 off eBay a year and half ago, they are prolly even cheaper now. But yah I'll be the first to admit it's not the highest quality stuff. But I don't go all out on stereos/DVD/LCD etc.

                              Point is it gets the job done, works well enough, and everything else sounds great I'de rather use my money for speed (or looks anyway).

                              I like your idea for placement for your new one. Post pics then, I'm curious to see what it'll look like!

                                I did the same thing but no eq underneath, still have the ac climate controls there, but have sick cd, eq, & 2nd bass restoration unit in stock headunit place with the lcd in the vents.

                                any din sized lcd will work.

                                    Not exactly... that looks like where your oem stereo would be... but his is actually where the Vents would be so a little higher... Where the oem stereo would be he put his gauges for his three wheel motion ( only teg i know that thinks its a lowrider lol)

                                        whiteteggy, what size is that screen? Sorry if it's already answered in the other thread. Looks good . I thought about doing the same thing, but I wasn't sure where I was going to put the reciever. I don't know if I want it at the bottom.

                                              if you want something on your sun visor you can get buult in screen visors from www.mp3playerstore.com for pretty cheap like under 200 us each... as for me i bought an in dash screen only and mouting it below my deck so they just layer on top of each other.. the space in the teg is big enough for a double din deck which would be the same as 2 single din units... i was acutally thinking of moutning a screen or the in dash where the vents are but for now its good enough.. too lazy to chop shit up..

                                                I really don't want to give away my ideas, altho plenty of people know about it. Personally saw this custom installation on a mazda rx-7. Where they basically used all their air vents, and stock speaker placemnets and put something else there. ie screen or something.

                                                I will show you guys some pics of my lcd installation, I'll want your opinions.
