Default HUD install?

Has anyone tried to install an aftermarket HUD or one from another Bonne? Can you get an aftermarket HUD?

I'm not aware of any aftermarket Huds, but we had a former member who was an electrical engineer that did a transplant from a 90'* bonneville into an 80'*. It worked, but he didn't change the windshield, so he had ghost images. It'* quite an undertaking.

It'* optically coated so the HUD will only reflect off the inside face of the glass. If it'* not coated, you'll see two images, one off the front, one off the back of the glass, and both dim. Double vision. An auto glass installer can add an optical coating to the inside for you, but it'* inferior to factory HUD glass. A HUD windshield will run you about $1200 US.

I think I saw an aftermarket HUD in JC Whitney. I believe you had to put some sort of transparent sticker on your windshield to get the accurate reflection.

The 98 SSE had HUD. The SSE I have now doesn't. Your saying that the windshields of both of these cars are different? Wow, I thought about changing the ***** of the climate control and getting the Electronic Climate Control. I guess this would be expensive to. Is it possible just to go to the junk yard and get a windshield from there and get the HUD as well?

It'* tough to get a windshield out without damage, and even tougher to clean it up so when you re-install it you don't have leaks. That'* almost as big an undertaking as the HUD install itself.

The climate control would be a lot of work too. You have to install a HVAC programmer under the dash and all of the correct temperature sensors.
