I had always thought the radio & the HVAC controls should switch locations, especially with a manual trans, the radio is a somewhat a pain to get to. So I have been working on swapping locations.

So far, needs some work yet.

Did you have to extend the hoses and climate wire? I plan on trying this also. Want to install a touchscreen monitor in that whole area.

It looks good. How do you plan on holding it to the dash?

Haven't got that far yet. Hoping there is enough.

I made this bracket



It's between the dash and radio/HVAC, some of the screws go through into original mounts while others just screw I to this for support.
