I like the head rests rather then having on the back of seat. Just recently had a 10.4 inch flip down put in. What size screens or those on the back of the seats?

What front bumper is that on your 95 conversion, And where did you get it?

The headrest monitors are 5 inch. The bumper is a California Customs front bumper. I believe Street Trends is now selling their bumpers since they went out of business.

Sothern Comfort,
I know you responded to my e-mail a few months ago concerning the install of the Cali bumper but I just want to ask you again. I am installing this piece next week and I wanted to know how you did yours. My mechanic wants to drill a hole in each shock and then fill in the holes after they are compressed. Would this be the right approach? Thanks for your time

Yes he is doing the right thing. Make sure he drills the holes towards the back of the shock so that the fluid comes out. Towards the front you will get nothing but air and will not compress.

Hey I also hear you could just cut some of the the rings off and reweld them. If you look at the bumper shocks there is three rings u can cut the third one and reweld it back and should clearace it enough for the bumper

Hey I was looking through old posts on video and came across yours. I'm thinking about putting two 7" flip downs, where one of them would be all the way forward like yours. Is that a good location, or is it too close/angled?

Hello I have a rear street trends fiberglass cal customs that is a few inches to wide doesnt fit all that good and hits on the trunk lid. Did you have the same problems when installed and how did your body shop go about them?

thanks

Let me know if I am comprehending correctly. You want to put to 7 inch monitors in between the visors or take the visors out and put the monitors in that location? If you are talking about reeplacing the visors, I really dont think it would look good. I have not seen it done but who knows. Another reason would be mounting location. You have nowhere to mount them at those locations. There are no brackets there only in the middle, you would be drilling screws through the roof.Let me know if you need some 7 inch flip downs, I have a great deal going on right now.

I have seen the rollpans come out like that. I ordered one for my customers before Cal Customs went out of business and it was exactly like you mention tooooo long. His body shop had to end up cutting pieces out of it to get it to fit.
My rollpan hits the trunk lid also, always has It chips the paint off and rubs when I close the trunk too hard. I have a little paint missing and have to touch it up every so often. There isnt really a way around it unless you sand it down.

No, I mean right where yours is, then another one over the front seats in the middle for the rear seat passengers. I just wanted to know how the angle on the front one looks where yours is. Thanks.

OH Ok I see what you mean now. Yes the way you are talking about are very good locations.I recently upgraded my flip down monitor to a bigger and better one. The 5.6 one was alright and I could see it good from both seats. I upgraded to a 7 inch monitor that swivels in both directions and is thinner than the other one. The new one swivels and locks in two angles in both directions. The monitor also has dome lights built in that are brighter than the factory dome light. If you are going to mount one for the backseat passengers get one with dome lights because you will have to delete the factory one for the mounting location. PM me for further input.

Here is a pic of my new 7 inch monitor
