    Its starting to happen now with a few Commodores...you need to cut the top and probably the sides of the tray...depending on your unit. It looks real good when done properly without things sticking out and whatnot. This is mine...

    There are also some little plastic (nibs? or bumps?) that are under the heater core which may stop the unit going in a lil...I had to chip them off...but you may not have to. Number one thing...be patient...doing it almost sent me nuts. Also need to make sure you're head unit reads properly on an angle of about 30 degrees or more, as that will be the angle that it will be on...

    hehehe...well...I was on a pretty limited budget and just had to have one. My cuz directed me to ebay where there are lots of screens. It is a motorised one coz I didnt see the point in getting one where I had to take it out...I liked the look of automatic. It's just some brand I guess. All I know is it does the job of showing whatever I want to show...and in the end people arent gonna care what it is...coz they'll be too busy enjoying the entertainment. Cost for the motorised ones start around $200 on ebay...and the manual pull out screens cost much less...something round $140 I guess.
