Hello.

bored, i decided to fit the X9 Evo 2 part screen to my X8, it fits, the X8 and X9 are same screen and fittings.

It all fitted but......the Evo screen support arms have no where to go so fail! but i could fit a X9 screen should my X8 screen becomes damage and X9 one is cheap at least i know now.

I thought the captive nuts and supports for the 'antlers' as I call them may be the biggest problem.
Could you fit the cross bar with the necessary support from an X9 subframe, or is there nothing to weld or bolt it to?

Under the screen and dash there is a bar just like x9 has about same place were the support arms go but on x8 its just a bar and no holes. I could make something up I think.  But need to have a good think how to do it.

 My idea is the bottom hole on the clear screen can be bolted as it Is. The other 2 holes at top I could fit a metal flat suport plate to secure it to the black part of the screen hut would ss stress to the lower screen at speed. But could be do-able
