what kind of screen? and how big is your dash? check out www.mp3car.com/vbulletin in the show off your car section. you could get some great tips just from searching around.

make sure you read everything about fiberglassing and maybe do a test or two on something junk just to make sure you get the hang of it. maybe get some pics up of your dash and the monitor and we could give you some suggestions

i just mounted mine in the glove box, and built a trim panel around it and carpeted it. didnt take that long, could have looked better but for the rush i was in i think i did fine.

i would just cut into your air bag holder, smaller then your screen, and then just squeeze it in there. your triming will cover the cuts and also make it so it will not go insider the holder, but find a way to zip tie it or secure it to something below your air-bag holder, so it does not come out randomly. make sure your cuts are straight and measured out because even if its off a bit you will notice it later.

Could EASILY glass a monitor in there.

looks really nice.
