    Default 1988 Excalibur Dash

    My red XR-7 project has an early 90s Pioneer system in it.

    It sounds good but I was going to put it back to original with stock parts.

    I have now decided that the next owner will probably just chuck the OEM and put what they want in anyways.

    I might as well keep my valuable stack of stock electronics to my self !

    This kit car on eBay has sold me on doing a double din system.

    Baxo once did an old school Apple Mini in his dash with a touch screen. Was pretty slick back in the day.
    It's Gumby's fault.

    Not many old cars have this amount of space on the dash.

    The Fox Bird/Cougar designers really set us up for the future.

    The only other older car that I can think of, that had this space was the Oldsmobile Toronado.

    It used a CRT TV style screen.

    The only thing that might be difficult is finding a vinyl that will look factory or clean to tie it all in.

    My thoughts as well. In that case the best bet is probably to repaint/recover all the trim so it matches.
