    Where to mount my screen?

    This is such a newb question......

    So, here is a picture of the dash area of my car. It's changed very little, I just got a new receiver.



    Now, here's the issue, I don't want to do anything permanent or semi-permanent to the car.

    I have 2 ideas for where the screen could go.

    1. Make a little shelf under my receiver (take the pocket out) and put the monitor on a stand there.

    2. Have a gooseneck kind of device that I can move all over the place. Maybe the GF can watch a movie while I'm driving, etc...

    3. Anything that you guys come up with...

    Well, this is where I'm stuck. Let me know what you guys think.

    BTW, the screen is a Lilliput 619 screen.

    Peace,

    Rafster

    Velcro it above your AC controls.

    Speaker mount by Panavise

    I mounted my Xenarc using a Panavise speaker mount and parts of a CCTV (camera) mount. The speaker mount is screwed to the side of the transmission hump and then some straight links go straight up to the camera mount knuckle. The Xenarc 700TSV has a tripod style mount on the bottom with 1/4-20 threads that work with any camera mount.

    I found the parts at a local computer and electronics store (Altex) but they are made by Panavise. I spent about $32 for the two kits.

    Sorry, I just mounted the screen yesterday, no photos yet. I am going to post a thread next week to show the whole system, once I finish installing components. I will snap a pic tomorrow in daylight showing the touchscreen mount and post it in this thread.

    Photos

    The first photo shows the upper ball joint with thumbscrew for easy repositioning. You can also remove the screen completely by loosening this one and unscrewing from the Xenarc's mounting hole. It probably wouldn't hold up to every day removal, nor would the electrical connectors on the back of the screen.

    The second pic shows the lower ball joint and the overall clean install. There is a large plate mounted to the tranny hump and only the ball protrudes through a hole in the carpet. If I remove the entire thing I will just have to make the carpet lay flat to hide the evidence that something was there.

    HEre are the specific parts I used:
    Lower ball joint is Panavise 105108B 8 pound speaker mount (stud mount)
    Upper parts are a universal camera mounting bracket model CMB-1B made by www.mgelectronics.com
