    pics of dash, any help with design?

    Hey this is my fiat punto dash. Just wanted to know if it was possible to move the heater knobs somewhere else cos that would be the ideal place for the screen. the original position below the head unit is just a bit too low. tell me what you reckon?

    also another quick question, tried to find the answer myself. I'm taking the 8inch lilliput casing off so i can get it to look flush with the dash. after the case is off how does one change the inputs from vga to s video etc cos the buttons are on the front!?

    It really depends on how much work/time you are willing to put into it.

    Personally I like you second option best, mounting your screen up more. This gives you serveral advantages and won't be as distracting vs. having the screen lower. If you placed the screen in the lower position, it is going to be harder to switch songs and stay focused on the road.

    However, it takes more work moving you AC/heat controls and such. It will some time and a good amount of research.

    Also, the Lilliput should come with a remote that allows you to do the functions you need. Just don't cover up the IR sensor.

    cheers and good luck

    I like the second option (dash3.jpg) also, but yeah, it's going to take the most work...

    If you want the easiest way, for for option 1. If you want it to be the best it can, go for option 2.

    if the climate controls have no mechanic parts than relocate them lower.

    looks really good simple. Just started moving the bits around now, should be ok, but itll take some time. Could you tell me what type of filler u used around the screen, and where u got your bracket and what type u used to hold the screen to the dash.

    cheers
