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.
