AU2 In car DVD. Where to put it?

A query for a future project:

AU2 Fairmont, 6 Disc In Dash CD, Climate Control etc. I have no idea where i would put the DVD screen, apart from the back of the headrests, but id like one in the front as well. Im not keen on putting it in the roof.

Any ideas where a good spot for it might be?

Re: AU2 In car DVD. Where to put it?

Have you considered replacing your head unit? You could get a single din unit with a flip-out screen and put another single din unit under it or just a coin pocket.

Also, since you have a Fairmont, have you considered the factory option? The sat nav system in the Fairmonts has a screen integrated into the dash. To fit it in, you have to replace the centre trim panel and a few of the buttons on it etc. - you end up with a slightly different dash layout and you loose your ash-tray, but have a nice VDO colour screen factory-mounted in the dash about where your radio currently is - actually a little higher than that I think, then the radio is moved down a bit to sit below it (hence no room for ash-tray) and buttons are now to the right of the screen. If Ford don't sell the screen seperate from the whole sat nav, you'd just be able to buy it from VDO and get the mounting brackets etc. from Ford I reckon.

Just a coupla thoughts.

Steve.

Steve_T,

thanks, that's actually a good idea. I've got a pic of the Fairlane dash with the Satnav Screen and it looks like it may be the way to go, even if Ford did sell the screen id still source it from somewhere else though to avoid their markup.

The only issue i can see with that option is that Satnav was a factory option because it had to be integrated into the loom. Im assuming that was to power the screen etc, but if its for anything else it may be a bit complicated to do?
