sooooooooooooooooo, as some of you may remember, i bought a 7inch lcd for my passenger side visor. that plastic case didnt hold up so well and busted due to the vibrations. then i took all teh perfect circuit boards and made a ghetto lil duct tape case and threw it into the glove box....but i wasnt satisfied at all with it there. touchscreens been sold but this is still good for goldeneye and my video ipod. i wanted to make some fiberglass case for it and have it mounted off teh roof in the front middle.....but the vibrationd would still be an issue sincei couldnt anchor it down as good as it would need it, and i havent dabbled with fiberglass yet (soon enough i will).....

so i looked at my dash, and there's a double din space for my shit. i moved my eclipse deck down to the bottom of the 2 spots and moved the lil cubby hole i had to the top. i managed to attach the screen to the cubby and secure of the boards inside the cubby. then with some raammat and some some luck i got the lcd to mount to the cubby, which sticks right into my dash...and thus a 7inch lcd RIGHT above my cd3000. the screen comes down flat and the HU's face is angled, which turned otu pretty good. at worst there's alil shinny deadener visible behind the screen but not bad. for being ghetto as **** it turned out lookin halfway decent. my phone is smoking crack and only sent 2 ics before it wigged out. but here are those 2.





looks pretty sweet, the cd3000's angle compliments the screen. the actual screen lines upw ith the eck perfectly, and over to the driver side the panal with the buttons you think would make it all look off, but wiht the screen lined up it;s kosher.... and now i have what seems to be a 2.5din face area right there. even though it doesnt fold into anything, it's close enough to the dash behind it that it's barely visable from the front winshield, and even less visable in the side windows with the tint (at night you cant even see it, the black plastic face blends wiht the night).

not bad for jut a few slivers of deadening and some creativity

i mean it looks better than the visor did (only way i could get it mounted was off center and it color was completely off). better than the glove. granted once i get familiar wiht fiber glass im sure ill go back and fix that up and make it look REALLLY nice...but for now this is fine. i havea high tolerance for ghetto looking shit in my car and this is by far not nearly as bad as some of the shit ive shown u guys lol

Posting this in the general forum is just asking to get some flames though...Oh well, I find it all entertaining. Bass on.

I could think of a dozen ways to properly install such a screen.

But then again, I'm not an amature half-assed hack job //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/wink.gif.608e3ea05f1a9f98611af0861652f8fb.gif...

Occasionally.

ya. it'll do for now. once i have some steadier funds to funnel into the car (as ussual) i'll start getting into fiberglassing. Hopefully within 6 months or so ill start start working on pods, a newer case for this. by that time i'll also have better boxes done too with resin.

Half Assed, yes

Hack Job (specificly the hacking to the car that isnt pretty ussually), oh yes

Still a halfway decent looking spot for it, taking a grand total 15 minutes to make //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/smile.gif.1ebc41e1811405b213edfc4622c41e27.gif it'll do nicely for now

so the screen is stuck on with deadener. thats crap tastic, at least do these things Not in VW
the screen was screwed onto the cubby hole piece that comes out of the DIN spot. but for the most part the deadener is what supoorts it mainly. Was really a spur of the moment idea that IMO looks alot better than it wa sin the glove box.

anyhow a few more pics







ya the camera phone *****...but you get the idea.

this is great... in the lexus thread, you call me whatever little retarded names your tiny mind can come up with, because i said that b&w's install looks like ass (as it does) and it was amature at best (it is) and here you are slamming bassaddictj's equally half-assed install. Why is that? why did you feel the need to stand up for B&W and not make your usual harsh flames? because he runs fi? really, your a special case...
