Even before I got my Roadmaster I've been thinkin' about putting a mobile video unit in it (pretty distant thinking but why not start early). After looking at a number I found that I'd rather have a 6.5" stationary unit than a flip-out screen, mainly because the flip-out one would break with my luck, but I also think that it looks a lot better. Now I've been to places like Circuit City and they say it can't be fit into a 1995 Buick Roadmaster (which obviously must be what I have). But looking around I've seen it done, music videos and the like and even on Cardomain:

If anyone knows how these head units can be made to fit the dash of a 94-96 Roadmaster (whether it be modifying the dash or adding supports, whatever) that would be much appreciated as I love these head units. Also, if this topic was already answered in an older thread let me know.
