    Hey guys,

    Ok so i am getting a really good deal on a flip out head unit from a buddy. The only problem is the only way i see people mounting their dash kits is so that the single din is on top of the pocket which is down below. When i install it i dont want to install it on the top cause when the screen is out it will be super high over the dash. Is it possible to mount the dash kit so that the pocket is up above? so that when the screen opens it covers the pocket but sits around where a double din would sit in front of the dash not up above?

    Thanks
    Riley-
