Does the factory roof mount unit have a audio video input? If it does you will need to disassemble the unit and solder into the video input lines and attach it to the video output line from the Alpine. If it does not have a av input, you will need to find the video input from the dvd unit and splice into it at that point. Generally this is not the kind of thing for a DIY person with limited tools and abilities to try and do. If you feel up to the challenge and the risk, then go for it. For the record though, this is one thing that I recommend a shop do for you.

Center pin of the rca is +, outside is shield. You will need to remove the overhead unit from the car and work on it on a bench. If you have access to the backside of the rca av inputs on the overhead this will be a very simple task to do.

This will only allow you to use the front dvd unit as a source to drive the overhead monitor. It will not allow it to operate in reverse. It is far more complicated to work it in reverse.
