How difficult is it to install an Astro overhead console with a TV screen in it? What would I have to do?
TIA

I haven't actually put one in my car yet, but I did install a small (5" or 5.6" - I don't recall) screen into the CD case holder of the console. I modified the 'hinges' so that it would drop down all the way instead of just a couple of inches. I took off the elastic strap, and dremelled down the plastic to meet up with the front edge of the screen. I had to install my screen upside down to allow the cords to go to the top of the console, but the screen I bought reverses the image for cases like this. Then I just used industrial strength velcro to attach the screen. All that needs to be done now is install the console and wire everything up. My screen does not have sound (I plan to run sound through my CD player's auxilary input to hear it through the speakers), so all that is needed is video, power and ground. And the wiring up of the console itself of course.
