    Location?

    Hi,

    I think I may have posted this before, but my comp crashed, and I can't remember. Just wanting to get your opinion, and if someone could photoshop it in, that'd be sweet. In the middle, right where the recess in the dash is ,there is loads of dead space. Thinking of starting the screen just above the wood and continuing as far up as I need, with a hood and then a fan in the back of the hood to keep things cool
    Second opinions, please

    A picture form the fron would make things much easier, also some measurements would help too, so the result would be closer to reality.
    What car is that?...besides HUUUGE!

    I think thats a perfect position for it. Most folks put the LCD where the radio is, and as fantastic as the installs look, if the thing is below the wheel, you cant watch the road with your peripheral vision.
    In my opinion, for things like GPS you really want to be able to have the screen up near the window so you can do the quick glance at your system without totally looking away from the road

    I think I'd move the AV controls somewhere else (Maybe where one of the vents are) then create a custom fabrication to have a screen where the AV controls and current Headunit are.

    That thing is screaming for a flip/slide up screen between those cup holders or a semi molded screen that is above the vents and sticks up above the top of the dash in a nice molded surround. Like the Mondeo at the UK meet the other month. (anyone got a pic of it? I think i sent one to cris)

    I'd go along with what Scouse says and put it where the coin tray is. Aren't those 'cup holders' air vents? A nice flip-up screen would look great there especially if you could motorise it. Nice ride btw, I used to have one of those babies but got cheesed of with 15mpg! Mind you, my right foot was probably responsible for that.

    Yup, they blow hot and cold, pardon the pun! Heh, they are nice, and you certainly get moved over for and become the object of envy at school. 15MPG is being solved with LPG - seems like a wonderfuel, provided and anti-backfire valve is fitted. Um, there are two metal bars under the coin tray which would make a GREAT base to anchor the screen and then to fabricate the hood/surround around! You get many 16 year-olds fiddling with this stuff?
