Here is another case of putting things where they dont belong!!!

I did this for a mate of mine who drives a BA falcon, and now we're offering it to my other fellow Ford fans.

Its a 9.2" LCD screen, installed just above the standard sound system, which is hooked up to an after market headunit, installed next to the cigarette lighter.

The photo posted up is just one way of doing this install, there are plenty others availble. Its even possible to keep the airvents.

Dont forget that Putting things where they dont belong is our specialty, so if you have any other crazy ideas, Im happy to listen!

This is simply done by movnig the screen down a little and getting rid of the functionless audio controls and using a slighly smaller LCD.

True, but if you want an aftermarket unit, then you've got to go custom.

I'm looking at putting in an aftermarket navi, not the crappy VDO unit which Ford supplies, and not some crap thing which sticks to my windscreen either.
