First off I'd like to say thanks for all your help so far.

Question: I have somebody that is going to make the custom bezel for me to install my carputer, but my question is did you have any problems fitting the screen?

I see that you just covered all the button but there doesnt seem to be much room between the radio bezel and the bottom one with all the heater/ac controls.

I actually cut an opening out of the radio bezel for the screen. I fiberglassed the screen in. No buttons are covered, they just aren't there anymore.

Here are some links showing the intermediate steps in fabricating the peice. Hopefully these will give you a better idea of what I did.

No I understand that part but the screen you said you had in a previous post has button's on the side of it.

I didnt know if you had a problem clearing them.

Oooh.. Sorry, misunderstood. There was a little trouble clearing the buttons below the DIC screen. I had to shave about a millimeter or two of plastic off the entire bottom of the rack that holds the buttons. I also had to grind the socket in the faceplate for the knobs to get the screen to fit.
