Opinions and advice on screen placement sought.
Okay I am now ready to move to the second stage of my car pc project. I have decided to mount my screen in my dash and lose the head unit. Here is what I have to work with, all opinions and advice are welcome.
These first 4 pictures are the double DIN opening I have:
As you can see the lilliput fits perfectly within the width of the opening.
Too bad it is too tall.
My first thought was to chop away the areas in red.
It would look something like this only much more recessed:
Then I thought maybe it would be better if I mounted it behind the opening.
It may be a little too recessed though. I figure that I could create some
sort of frame that fills the gap between the screen and the frame. Kind
of like a border around the mounted frame.
I am open to suggestions or comments. Thanks.

Well it looks light I am going to have to go with the first option There is very little vertical high behind the radio bezel. Very tight fit. I will try to bondo it in after cutting away the bottom portion of the bezel. Not looking forward to all of that sanding though.
