Hey,
Just a Quick question,
I am installing a 15" roof mount screen in the EF. I just need to know where would be the best option in regards to moving the interior light, as the light will need to be moved for the screen.
I have the rear reading lights, and just need something for the front of the car
Cheers
Chris

I assume you would mean a TFT :P ... that's a big screen and would be pretty difficult to see - you'd be taking your eyes way off the road lol ... a smaller 7" on the dash not to your liking?
