No. I also think you'd stand a great chance of cracking the glass.
Here's the space I have in the board monitor shell:
I found a capacitive 6.5" wide panel, that is of this size:
Active Area: 144.00mm x 80.00mm
Outline Dimensions: 164.00mm x 110.00mm
Active area is a great match, but there is 5mm x 6mm extra. And since the shell is motorised and moves up/down, it means that to fit that screen in there, the laws of physics have to make an exception if it's to work.
Anyone have any ideas how I can get that screen in there?
So far I've been thinking about getting the dremel out, and very carefully grinding away 2.5mm from the left and right sides, and 6mm from the top side. Do you think a projective capacitive screen would still work if I somehow manage to do that?
Here's some touch panel data:
I too was looking for a 6.5" LCD (800 x 480) and matching capacitive touch panel since 7" is not gonna fit in my double din opening either. Could you please share your source and datasheet?.
Capacitive screens are unfortunately bigger than their resistive counterparts which makes it more difficult in their integration. I was thinking of CNC'ing a bezel for 7" but if I can get hold of a 6.5" capacitive touch panel and LCD, it may be just the right fit.
Soooo, let me get this straight. What you need in a TARDIS?
