    How to install RES on EX-L?

    I have a 2007 Odyssey EXL without RES. I've got a line on a res system (OEM Headunit, OEM DVD Player, and OEM Screen) but I need a bit of information on how to install it. Are there installation instructions from Honda anywhere?

    I can probably figure out the wiring and getting the head unit in but I'm wondering a couple things:

    1) Where can I find the trim piece and mounting bracket for the DVD player? I understand that it goes in the storage bin below the headpiece.

    2) I don't have mounting bracket for the overhead screen or a template on where to cut the headliner. The EXL has a sunroof...any idea where I cut and how much? I can probably fabricate a mounting bracket if I knew what it looked like and where it attaches....If anyone has any pictures of the overhead install, I'd appreciate it.

    It can be done but it is NOT Plug and Play. There is a thread on here by I think King is the handle. You have to build your wiring harnesses for this swap. If you cannot do so, that US$299 is going to go down the drain.

    The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the Hidden Content .
