    8" lilliput in 03 BMW e46

    Heres my progress so far....really rough still in this pic ill try uploading more build pics when i feel like messing with it but u can see how its gona look here



    When i finish the build im considering making a mold for it to sell. I realize there is a 7" kit already available on here so i figured there may be more people like me that want the largest size they can get in the factory location. Let me know if there is any intrest.

    As far as i know this will work with only the lilliput 889GL-80NP.

    8" Bezel

    Woah, so far so good!! You'll have to let us know if you're happy with that particular monitor (specs seem a bit on the low side for brightness and contrast), and how the bezel turns out. I may just be interested in one shortly

    Some more pix... and a space navigator molded into the factory cup holder location....stole that idea from somebody on here. yeah i know the grey is not a dead-on match but its nearly impossible to match grey without having custom mixed colors. I will definately let you know how the screen is... Im a little worried about glare but i do have 20% tint all the way around so i think it will be ok...may do another layer on rear window if its an issue.

    Well, that cupholder is looking good regardless! How do you make something like that? I'm dying to do one myself.

    Looking forward to hearing back about how you like your screen too. By the way, have you considered selling your mold to the guy at MyBimmer.net. Bet he'd snatch that up from you and start mass-producing them.

    Laters!

    Does the space navigator let you control the computer's mouse?

    to be honest i have no idea what all it can do. Im still yet to get my operating system and get the computer going. Ive just been workin on the install for now. from what i understand it can be programmed to do different functions so maybe it can be used as a mouse. i just wanted it to use for volume and track selection...stuff like that. having a mouse isnt that big of a deal to me since its a touchscreen anyway.

    That's a very nice screen job. You are are going to make everyone with 7" screens jealous

    I have one too, but I feel like a lot of times it is annoying to use. Especially for situations like scrolling a song list. Thanks for showing this. Definitely getting one now.

Since I'm programming my own front end I'm just going to program it around this little guy. I'll probably write a little application that lets it go into a sort of mouse mode too.
