    Install tips for a MX6 2nd gen

    Hey there,

    I'm building a carpc in my mx6. But I've not figured out where I'm going to build the screen in.



    If some has some ideas i would be very happy.

    And because I haven't worked with poly yet maybe someone could give me some pics.

    And here's a pic of my ride

    i'd suggest looking in the "show your ride" / "worklog" sections

    there have been a few mx6's that i've seen..

    as to the position of the screen, it all depends on the amount of work you want to put in, you could get a motorized screen, and put it where that headunit is, of you could take out the headunit and fabricate a screen directly into the console..

    again, depends what you really want, or whats comfortable for you

    Few people have done it with different results but the basic idea has always been the same - modify the 2 din slots in center console.
    Example:

    I started working on the dash this weekend.

    I've chosen to work on the ashtray and the lower dinslot. There I've made an opening where i can put my 8" touchscreen.

    I'll post some pic's tonight.
