so whos got em??

i just installed one from a 98-01 (i think) subaru forester. isnt a perfect color match but looks decent and can always paint it in the future. all i have left to do is wire it up but i need to fix the clock on it first.

pics to follow (im on dial up currently so when i get on something faster it'll be up)

so whats anyone else have?
:salute:

to be honest i never thought it through other than how wide it needed to be. i fabbed up a support system using an old yark stick, chunks of mdf, two zipties, one screw, and a lil duct tape (shhhh dont tell anyone). there is a supprising amount of room between our headliners and roof so you def do have 3" or so to play with up in there. crap i gtg get pics up...

i layed some speaker box carpeting over it for rattle or w/e that could come from it. no probs at all even with the bass cranked.

I'd paint it the same color as the "Oh Shit!" bars.
yeh. either that or the o shit handles, center light and other ceiling things will all become the same gloss black that my interior panels are.

And by all means necessary fix the well rigged mounting system. I'd hate to be the one rolling down the highway when "Oh Shit" the overhead console gets a mind of it's own and comes untaped.

Do me a favor and tell me how larger the clock space is. I might do this mod and stick me Valentine 1 remote display into it in place of the clock. :D

I have to admit I laughed a little here.

This sounds like something nasa does when something is wrong in space and they have to fix it with whatever they can find in the shuttle.

I think the final product looks great! As long as it stays up there, who care what it looks like... :shrug: Nice job.
