Mounting a double din DVD monitor with no bracket???

Bought a JVC double din DVD monitor. I've connected all the wires and soldered them...blah,blah, blah. However. WHat is the best way to mount a double din unit in my vx commodore, as the brackets from the stock h/u don't fit onto my new JVC h/u??? Is it possible to buy a double din bracket OR is my best bet to take the dash facia and surroundings off so that I can rivot or put screws through to hold the unit???

Any tips please????????

I got mine for $1400 ex display and i wouldnt go anything else only due to the fact that the roads up here a not that good (heaps bumpy) and the double DIN screen dont flop around like some that i saw..........



P.S I know the screen is dirty ;) ;) ;) ;)

Do you want roof mounted or in dash?
Mine is roof mounted screen with the dvd player out of sight under the front passengers seat.
The brand is blaupunkt and it cost me $750 fitted and come up a treat, click on my link and have a look!

Hi ruso,
Why not go a eurovox double din dvd player?New price $550(with tv aerial or $490 without)Installed myself in my vt,has radio,mp3,cd,tv and dvd...All good,tv reception works well,i pick-up around 7 channels....Optional extra is nav unit($1200)but i don't need this overpriced extra,anyway have gps&maps($130) on laptop,so on a long trip i'll take with me if needed:thumbsup:
Ps.Your Mp3 folder shows up on screen so you can scroll through and pick which mp3 to play.

Finally bought a JVC KW-AVX700 double din DVD reciever and monitor. Need help with the wiring. I've done many search's and have found the colours for wires. However the wiring from JVC obviously varies to the stock wiring.

Need help with;

1. Automatic antenna. My car has 2 wires one for the antenna to go up and one to go down...however the JVC wiring harness has one wire...AUTOMATIC ANTENNA. Do I connect this to both up and down wires????

2. Illumination. My car has Illumination and illumination output. Do I just connect the wire from jvc harness to the illumination wire only, or to the illumination output wire???

3. ALso it says to connect to a live terminal in the fuse block connecting to the car battery (bypassing the ignition switch). This would be the constant wire...correct???

Also is it best to pull all the wires out of the old harness and solder them to the new wires. Or just by some clips...to push new wires into the from my car harness...

Cheers
