    Greetz,

    I installed an iPod Touch mod on my 2005 non tech FX35 that I thought you guys might like to see. Basically I cut a hole in the bezel surrounding my screen, and hot glued an Apple AV composite cable. I ran the wires under the shifter plate and into the console, where I had pre-created RCA cables that then ran to the PAC NIS device. The sound is fully integrated into the factory system, and when the LCD screen is up, I can show the video there. It also plays to the rear flip up LCD that I installed in the back of the console, where the factory dvd player would go.

    The pop up screen. Seems like it's out of align. Do you have to handle it on open & close? That's what I meant.
    Mad face, cuz it's a great mod, but must be a PITA if it doesnt work without having to touch it all the time. COMPRENDE?

    oh..i get it.

    The only way to get the speaker grill to work...was to use a "spider trap door" like setup. I have the speaker velcroed to a plastic hinge...which is then velcroed to the top of the radio. I don't "have" to pop it...i usually just guide it with my hand, so the back part doesn't "catch" the lip. Since I didn't do it..I had to pop it. As far as closing...MOST times it will go right in there perfectly. Of course when I video taped it..it was off by a touch...and I had to "help" it.

    Otherwise..it is a pretty cool mod. Friends can't believe I mounted all that where a speaker once was. The flip up lcd in the back of the console is nice for the backseat riders....they get to watch too!

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Haze:)
