remove the lower dash and measure the front of your monitor. Cut the opening in the dash the size of the monitor. You can take the front casing off the monitor and glue it in to the opening. Make sure not to get gluewhere the casing snaps together. Use a high strength glue. Then fill the gaps with ABS plastic and fill with body filler and sand. Paint and let dry. Then snap the monitor back together. Do this right and it will look great.

unfortunately I don't. I have seen it done a bunch of times and used this method on building other things like displays and stuff. The head installer from my old job showed me how to do it and it really isn't hard. The hardest thing is coming up with the concept. Let me know if you need any more questions answered.

Yeah pretty much any stereo shop should use it and have some there. The shop I work at on weekends has at least 12 one square foot pieces all the time. If you cut it with a jigsaw you will have to work with it cuz it melts as it cuts. It will work though. Then go to an auto body supply and get I think it's duramix or durabond 4040. a good supplyy will know what it is. This stuff is amazing and will hold like it was factory. It isn't cheap but it is cheaper than getting someone to do it for you. Once you have the hole cut you can fit the trim in and glue everything together with this stuff. Then a little body filler and paint and you are on the way. Make sure you have all the clearance behind the dash to do this before cutting. I haven't done this in one of your cars I just know how to do it if there is clearance.

Yep i got mine in there, the screen is a 5.6" screen fits in there rear good only 1/4 gap on sides, to make it look right you will lose the woodgrain if you have it i there, the unit can still be removed and the backing plate stays in there
