hey tickfordxr6, i have put a head unit near the cigarette socket, the guys at autobarn did mine for me and they removed the tissue holder completely and made a custom plate with a suede finish and put a few brackets behind it to screw into. nothing major but yea it can be done, any further questions on the install ill be glad to help...
The lighter has to go, so you need to relocate it. I put an Equaliser in there for now, but it is standard DIN width. It's not hard to make a plate to finish it off from the surrounds that come with most units.
You can do the Alpine steering remote control, but you need an aftermarker converter and these are both a bit pricey ( $150?? ) and tricky to set up. I am guessing on the cost, as ?I asked some time ago at Northfield car sound up here in QLD.
I notice in the latest street machine fords, a BA XR6T with a head unit installed near the lighter socket in front of the Transmission.
I was wondering if anyone had done this, and if so does a DIN size Unit fit without much modification (cutting ).
yes it can be done
