Hey there guys, in the next week or so im goina attempt to put a roof mounted 8" screen into my el and the dvd drive im planing on installing in the dash underneath my pionneer head unit using a double din surround. Is it hard to mount underneath the std location as its not a double din setup at the moment, just the std dash, and also has anyone attempted to mount a screen to the roof before ??? any help would be much apprectiated.. rather find out problems now then halfway through the install, lol..


Thanks

i reckon mounting the second din wouldn't be that hard. Maybe by a face plate from autobarn and cut the edges of it to fit and screw like the your cd player(hard to understand - sorry late night). Otherwise you can make one up it you have some metal lying around.

Cheers

Hiya, El's and Ef's are double din already they just use a single din faceplate so you have 2 easy options, 1st is to use a fairmont double din face or 2nd just cut the pocket from the bottom of the standard face, if you are neat at what you do it would look the same as the fairmont face....
I personally use a fairmont face for my double din setup....
Cheers, Outlawxr6!!!

thanks for ya help fellas,, i'll have to get one from FORD this week, thinks they only $135 for a new one. I pulled the surround off today to check out what i was goina be in for and looks like its goina be a piece of cake there. The only dramas i can see myself havin its physcially mounting the unit to the roof, gettin the wires up there should be fairly easy..

Ive installed a lot of screens and the roof mount is not hard just take your time and DONT drill a hole trought the roof. Fords have big support bars in the roof so you wount find it hard to mount it, As for the deck in the dash you can buy pockets and it not hard to make some custome brackets to hold the stereo
