    Where to put the LCD? Help from experts needed :)

    Hi guys... I'm a newbie and I'm started using a carputer in my Rover 200 MK3. However, the work isn't finished...
    My problem is that the touchscreen I have (a lilliput 8.4") is too big to be placed on central tunnel, so... where I can put it?
    Just looking for a permanent installation (at the moment, i put the monitor on the air tubs(???))

    Sorry for my bad english, and thanks for the help in advance!!!

    I'm pretty sure you can fit it in your center consel if you remove you head unit and the cig lighter under it.

    cut the center bar just below the HVAC stuff.

    Remove the ashtray, remove teh radio, move the HVAC down to where the ashtray/radio is. Embed the screen where the AC and radio Was.

    You could also relocate the buttons on top o the HVAC.

    It's what I did to my bezel and I fit a 8.4" screen

    you can move the radio to the glove compartment.
    and for powering you screen, don't use the cig lighter. Get the power from you power supply
