Spring loaded tilt lift screen support...Help needed!
A spring loaded tilt lift screen support...I built with some steel parts, plywood and brass and steel hinges
(spring cabinet hinges) and a simple T hinge, that I may change for another heavy duty spring hinge and see if it helps, as far as vibration goes, etc.).
I haven't figured out a way to keep it closed, so I have to keep pressure on it. I think a touch latch would work great there, so probably I going to try one of these:
With the 1.5-2.0Lb screen helping, it should be enough to hold it in place. Press the screen down (gently :lol:) and it should lift itself up...
So in the pictures below I use the bit that I dremelled off the lid as a mock up screen, a very thick one at that...3" thick, so this would be the worst case scenario...
Below, you can see the view from the driver's seat, it's absolutely PERFECT. It's right about where it should be, below the OEM NAV screen...Man I feel like I'm Cpt. Kirk already...:)
