I'd also not like to fiberglass anything if possible, but if there is no other option I probably can.
Does anybody have any suggestions on how i could still have access to the Hvac controls as well as not have the AC vents blocked by the top of the iPad? my plan is to replace my double din from a 06 and buy a single din with the aux and usb front ports to power and run audio to the system. (could anyone tell me if this way of powering does/doesn't work too?)
I know there is a pre made regular iPad mount for 05-07, not sure if that would be helpful for you.
But, it you want the iPad mini, it's looking like you'll have to do what I did, and cover up part of your vents and relocate the hazard switch. And I'd highly recomend getting a iPad mini tray from Soundman for a very good starting point.
