GM double din mount
I thought I would share some photos of a 7" xenarc display mount to fit a double din GM vehicle that I am making. The buttons are to replace the Xenarc buttons along with the power LED was replaced with a blue LED.
I have also added a USB port. The four screws are hidden behind the dash when it is installed.
Nice! Very reminiscent of a panel mount LCD for an airplane, nice fab!
Its very nice. Did you make this yourself or find it somewhere? So how about some details and pictures of the backside! Any in car shots?
Wow! Is that machined or what?
niceeeee i just picked up a 96 chevy blazer prolly gonna do something pimp like that :-D
Powder, what was the technology to mannufacture the bezzel and the buttons?
I need to figure out how to manufacture front bezel to my double din chassis (pc, not LCD).
I think it is very classic/simple looking which is exactly the look I am going for in my Impala.
Ah ha! I back tracked the pic links and it seems a company is selling these machined STEREO HU facia's for about $40- $50 USD.
From looking at the site I bet he works there or had them custom fab one for his screen.
I kinda like it.
Here are a few shots showing how I connected the buttons and LED to the xenarc display. To wire up the buttons I just connected one wire to ground and one wire to each button. I removed the power LED and attached a couple of leads so that I could add the blue power LED.
The design of the buttons is very simple but works well.
Here you can see the buttons and IR sensor
This shows the back of the button area and the LEDs. The top LED is the power LED and the two next to the buttons are for the button illumination that is connected to the dimmer wire in the vehicle.
