    anyone got a screen mounted in their mk3?

    ^^ as title ^^

    unless VX do a Sat Nav console for the mk3 that I haven't discovered yet then I'm at a loss regarding where to mount a screen in my mk3. anyone got one fitted? got any pics?

    I have an idea up my sleeve but I need to get out and measure up and that won't be for another day or three

    hmm.. not really what I wanted to do, I would prefer something a little less compromising on features like I have/had in my mk4..

    Well you have a mk4 dash, why not try and fit that into the mk3? Certainly something that would add features to the mk3, and give a more modern feel inside! (I don't mean centre console, I mean entire dash )

    nah... too much work in a £400 car - plus its my daily drive so I can't go ripping the dash out and having it off road for godknows how long.

    maybe in a few months when I'm back in work and have picked up a Coupe for the daily drive and made this my project car

    Only way Ive seen it done is to mod the origional centre console cutting out the area from the headunits standard position up (removing the MFL display) and building it up from there. There was never a screen dash for the MK3 (bear in mind in 97 we were still using TV;s the size of a small car).
