That may be a problem. I ran into something similar with an alpine flip out a while back. Had a ford taurus that had a lip over the head unit area. Options were to have the face of the head unit stick out even with the edge of the lip, or the screen had to be tilted forward so far you couldn't see it. Looked out of place hanging out of the dash so I ended up rebulding the dash area. :)

I had a customer come in the other day with the same problem but had "fixed" it himself. Customer took an airsaw to the dash :laugh: There was about a 4"x5" square missing out of his dash so the unit could flip up. Looked like garbo...

^^Problem with that is that most dash kits don't stick out. He won't have a problem getting the head unit in the car. The problem will arise ( as he said) when trying to open the screen as it will probably hit the dash. :)
