Maybe. Get someone with a 97 FSM to confirm the wiring for your year. I know it'* right for 93, the wire colors changed in 94, but the cell numbers are the same.

Default HUD installed in 92 SE

hello there folks, this is in responce to Damemorder'* post that stated you cannont mod a se dash to fit a hud, well i did just that last week, i cut a hole in the dash where the hud drops down into (very carfully) and wired it in and mounted the HUD control in the pannel to the left of the steering wheel coloum, whalla 5 hours later the HUD was in and working pefectly, the biggest problem I have is matching color of the new hud trim pannel to the dash (trim pannel tan, dash blue) got the color close but no cigar (too glossy and dark), any questions about my install or pics just post questions here or email me at [email protected],

Where are your pictures? Post 'em publically eh? How did you support your HUD control unit? What wiring did you use? What vehicle did your donor HUD system come from? I seriously doubt you.

And no, cutting a hole in a dash for a HUD is a bad idea. If one of you other guys does this against my advise, You're not getting help to fix it from me.

Default 1992 installed HUD

the HUD was out of a 99 SSEI, the plastic frame below the blue finish was able to support the hud towards the nose of the car, the aft side of the hud is supported by two screws that run through the traditional screw holes in the hud and i drilled two holes directly abouve the insterment panel above the trim panel for the cigarette and headlight control. I am at work right now and i will take pics and post them wene i get home this afternoon and about 5 pm central time, i do not recommend this mod for the novice mechanic, but what you did Dame seems more difficult and time consuming, changing out the whole dash and taking out the seats that must have taken you a while. the toughest thing about cutting a whole in the dash is, make sure you dont nick the windshiled, as for the hud control unit i pulled off the fake wood dash bezzle and behind that the black plastic frame had the hole and screw holes for the hud control, so i mounted in the plastic frame and cut the fake wood bezzle so they hud contol protrudes through.

o0o0o..... That'* nowhere near what I imagined you meant... Does it shake any? The HUD dash has an extra support inside. Did you measure out the distances to the windsheid? Are you sure it'* positioned right? Looks like it'* slightly off to the passenger side.

But uh..... Good job man. Sorry about that whole "doubting you" thing

Default positions...........

no it dosnt shake or anything, it fits in there really tight, the way i mesured it is i measured how the hud fit into the trim pannel then put the trim panel on to the dash which showed me where the hud would be positoned, esspacally where the trim panel fits into the HUD and how close the the front of the HUD went to the windshield. When im driving the speed is directly above the 12 o'clock position of the steering wheel, im not sure of the correct position of a built in one, and i get the full range out of the hight adjustment,

thank you Dame and not a problem,

nickyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Keotok is an Electrical Engineer.

The only difference with Damemorder is that he took the time to document the procedure step-by-step so that others could do it easier.

There'* two ways to do anything. Straitor was concerned that someone might not do it RIGHT, and he was doing everything he could to make sure that wouldn't be a problem.
