    Your caddy looks great! Love the euro spec tails on a black SRX and steering wheel mod. Keep it up.

    orandaberg.....I like the headrest-mounted rear DVD screens. Mounted there (and recessed) they are eye level for adults and each rear passenger gets their own screen. Eye level which is what you want.

    Another advantage is that the Cadillac OEM screen is located down low at the rear of the center console front arm rest, which is fine when folded closed but when open leaves itself exposed to get wacked or broken by a careless adult or mosy likely a child or grandchild. The latter is my concern (grandchildren). While the DVD is a total godsend on long road trips with the little ones, I have had some close calls and on several occasions have to make sure I reach back and pop the screen closed. Otherwise, the screen will get snapped off. Those with kids know exactly what I am talking about. No matter how sturdy the mounting and the screen is, children will find a way to break it if one is not watchful.

    Are your screens driven by a single dash DVD with separate sound? One for the front passengers who want to listen to something other than the movie and one that directs the DVD sound to headphones in the rear?

    My SIL bought 2 DVD players for his MB ML SUV. The screens that hang off the back of the front headrests, each having it's own DVD that loads into the unit. Each child can watch what they like. Disadvantages, the use of batteries to operate. Temptation for thieves. The younger one can't load, unload, and operate......yet. And what if both kids or adults want to watch the same movie?

    Nice work!!!!

    Need to figure a way to connect the middle screen to the kenwood

    ----------

    Rear screens are IR so I do not have to hear it, I can play my music

    LOL I learn to take you with a grain of salt, by the way you are aware I ordered the goodridge SSB lines, some say it fits some have no clue, the brake hose number for the 07 match the 06, I posted a thread on this I was to be the guinea pig. I saw your thread that you made some SSB hoses, but why did you not use the Goodridge?

    I have a set of them, I was able to confirm they "should" fit just fine but not 100% sure.

    I may make new rears for a better fit, I got the set for next to nothing so no point in making them.

    Greatest invention since the advent of the wheel.

    My grandchildren ages 3 and 9 will sit in the back on a long road trip for hours without so much as a peep out of them, except for us to pop in another DVD when the current one is finished. Two sets of headphones, and the remote control in the hands of the 9 year old......and tranquility reigns!!!! I just have to (1) make sure the batteries in the headphones and the remote are fresh and ready, and (2) keep the little ones fed, watered, and their tanks well drained.

    We have made three 1,000+ mile (one way) road trips with them, and it turns a potential nightmare into a pleasure.

    One drawback: my wife has to clean off all manner of child "residue" off the kid's DVDs before popping them into the player. No such issue with our own inventory of Disney classics which the kids are not permitted to touch!
