Are you putting it in the same place? What's your current installation for your CRT television? Need more info. My 506 has 5 TVs that I am in the process of switching to LEDs.

Olms8j1,

Very interested to see what you come up with? I just purchased a 2003 360 Sport Sedan and plan to replace the original CRT TV as well. Would love to hear/see what you end up doing.

The easiest way to do it is with an articulating arm style mount. These mounts fold flat, but have 2 hinges in their mechanisms so they can go straight out. I would take the old TV out, and mount the arm at the very back. Then pull the arm straight out so it sits just outside the old "box" cabinetry, mount the LCD on the arm, and then push it back in until the back of he new tv is flush with the cabinets. If you need pictures of the type of arm let me know and I'll post.

Ok lads, I can't seem to post pics - but here is a link to the articulating arm that I bought on eBay. Basically, you simply remove the old CRT TV and install the rear of this arm inside the cabinet. Then pull the arm straight out and attach your flat screen. I had to make a false frame in the inside at the back to attach to because I couldn't get to the back of the cabinet. It was a simple 2x6 I used that was cut to fit the inside of the cabinet at the rear.

This mount allows me to slightly turn the TV to face either setee in my salon. I installed another one on a buddies 430 Cockpit MY as well, same setup.

how large of a flat screen did you put on the 360 Carver? Does it look finished or does it stand out and have the after market look? We don't have many choices I love the idea of a larger tv. But another option is a 20 inch in the hole and but that seems so small. Just looking to see how big you ended up with on the arm. 32 inch? Thanks in advance.
