    Smile Tips for Mounting a Lilliput tft in a Bmw 535i -92

    Hello there!

    I think the placement of the tft is best between the shift gear and the black panel and its much more discreet.
    Look`s like its the only place i can put the tft though.


    Have been reading some about the bondo and the fiberglass..
    Maybe a wodden frame 1st as a ground structure?
    Really want it to be intregated as a part of the car and looking real nice

    Any comments or tips is welcome

    yep, use wood for the basic structure and fill it in with bondo...shouldn't even have to worry with fiberglass if you have enough structure with the wood

    OK, that might work.
    But what is bondo in swedish.. so i know what to ask for
    Checked the placement for the screen Hmm.. look likes the 8 tft is to big
    and its nicer with a wide screen so i think im gonna buy the 7 tft touchscreen
    But the damn shift gear is right in the middle of the screen
    Maybe gonne replan this project afterall

    Bonbo in Swedish is Bondo. It's a brand name. It's also called 'auto body filler', 'all purpose filler' and 'all purpose putty'. If you translate any of those last three phrases into Swedish, someone at a hardware store should know what you mean.

    Good luck1

    Aha.. of Course "spackel"
    well im planning of starting with a wooden frame end then use some bondo..
    It`s a real pain in the *** to know how to put the screen and make it look good.
    But im gonna experiment a lot

    i have, where do you want to put the screen? theres not alot of room where the stereo goes maybe below a t anangle in the center console.
    Ohh and the problem with just using bondo is if its to thick (more then 1/8 inch) its probley gonna crack. use fiberglass then a bondo fiberglass mix. i just wrote about it here Fiberglassing Tips? on the last page
