    It took me a few hours to do it. Here is what it looks like at start:

    First you must remove the trim from the sides of the center dash:

    Remove the cubby (four screws). Then remove the climate controls assembly. This is attached to the area around the stereo also. There are two screws behind the left and right control knobs:

    Now remove the stereo (four screws). Your console now looks like this:

    We need to move the stereo down where the cuby was. But first remove the brackets from the stereo:

    The stereo will be supported by the trim once you push it back in. You will see. ;)
    I made my cradle out of a few peices of wood. A jigsaw and a dremel help! Bought some felt to make it fancy. Drilled a hole for the audio jack, glued it in. Unfortunately I did not take pictures. Got caught up in building it. Sorry. Once you are done you can use the old brackets from the stereo to mount it. Also I ran the wire for audio down the back and out the ashtray to my FM transmitter. You can see it at the bottom plugged into the cigarette lighter.
    The mount I made secures the PSP in place to where it doesn't move.
    Anyhow if you need help making one let me know. I can whip up the dimensions etc.

    Now some pics of the finished product.

    It looks way cool at night!

    That looks really good,
    It would be better if you had remote contollers so you can play games while waiting for you girl to come down,
    you know girls take a hell of a time to get ready ;)

    anyway this really looks good,
    WOW
    I'm back!

    Nah no 7" LCD for me. This is more "portable". I like to listen to MP3s through it anyhow. So it works out perfect. Also my Son loves to watch his cartoons and stuff I stick on it. And when he is not finished watching a show he can grab the PSP and take it in with him etc.
