  • FS: 7" Lilliput w/ TS, iMac slim slot load DVD

    Well, it was fun while it lasted.

    I had a 7" Lilliput installed in my VW Jetta for all of two weeks when I got in an accident. It was a little more than a fender-bender, but the way I got hit was enough to rip a motor mount-- so my car was considered a total loss.

    I've sinced moved on to another car, and am looking to buy a house... so now I have the following for sale:

    ** A 7" Lilliput XGA LCD with touchscreen. The LCD is in mint condition. I hacked the the bottom button area of the front plastic frame and melded it with a face plate from a VW Jetta CD player (as a cover for the DVD slot drive I'm selling below). However, I can free the hacked frame if you need it to fit a standard double-din slot. I'm asking for $200 shipped or best offer.

    ** SOLDAn iMac slim slot-load DVD-ROM drive, which has been hacked with an IDE interface. You can hook this up to your IDE chain, or use a USB-IDE adapter. I will also include the black plastic bezel cover (which covers the DVD drive perfectly and comes complete with a felt liner) so that you can easily integrate this into your exising setup-- assuming the buyer of the LCD doesn't want or need it. ** SOLD **

    ** A Dell Inspiron 1150 Laptop with 2.4Ghz processor, 512MB of RAM, and a 20GB hardrive. Also comes with a built-in 802.11g wireless adapter, a Cardbus 3-port firewire card, and integrated DVD/CD-ROM drive. I was using this as the brains of my carputer. The unit is about two months old (still 9 months left on factory warranty) and is still in great shape. SOLD

    It's been a few months since I've priced these things, so let me know (via PM) if my asking prices are out of line. Thanks!

    Was your LCD or drive "molded" into the dash? I have a '02 jetta and if you have a custom fab dash this would save me a bunch of work! Do you have pics?

      Well, they weren't exactly "molded" into the dash... but yes, The LCD frame and the drive look like a single unit. It was mounted to the dash with a few tension clips. Keep in mind that in order to fit the LCD and and the slim DVD-rom drive, you will have to cut the cup-holder support area. You can fit just the LCD if you use just the double-din space below the cupholder.

      I took a few pictures in the initial stage when I was molding the stuff together... you can find that thread here:

      As you can see, there's an area for the LCD and touchscreen, and just below is the DVD slot area. It also has the original buttons from the CD player put in, which you can wire and use for eject or power buttons. Also note the rectangular hole between the LCD area and the DVD-slot. This hole is now covered with thin plexiglass, and is where I put the IR sensor (all the buttons on the IR board glow blue, so the whole rectangle glows blue as well-- which gives a nice coordinated look with the Jetta). The whole frame is painted with SEM black interior paint, but you can of course paint it whatever color you want.

      I obviously don't have my Jetta anymore, but if you want I can take some pictures of the finished, but no longer installed, unit. Let me know if any of that helps.

        If you end up selling your custom molding and ppgt94 doesn’t need the black face plate for your dvd drive I would like to buy just the face plate for the drive maybe you could give him off some and I could pay whatever less u sell it for. PM me if something like this comes up thanks or could work out
        Starting an install in a 02 s4 when I get time, which will probably about the time i am looking to sell the car. Got to love it

                Hey sohr,

                I thought I would make a public post declairing that I already have a dvd drive on order. I am no longer interested in the dvd drive (incase you were holding it).

                I want to thank you for taking the time to answer all my questions. Good luck with the saling and I hope everything works out with your new project

                  Thanks ppgt94...

                  Yes, I was holding it for you (was waiting to see if anyone needed the Lilliput frame first, though). However, now I get to make someone else happy

                  Also, for those still interested in the LCD, I'll post some pictures tonight.

                      Here you fellas go. These are pictures of the LCD itself with the touch overlay and the rear case with the controller boards and IR interface.

                      I can also include the front bezel of the case (it's been painted black, and the bottom area of buttons had been cut off so it's nice and square now).

                      Also included is the egg power adapter, the wall power adapter, the LCD stand, and the VGA/USB cable.

                      Rear case with controller boards

                      LCD screen with touchscreen overlay

                      Both together

                        hmm....well thanks for the pics...now the question is...do you have the buttons that originally came with the screen? and the panel piece that you cut off? I'm curious how one would be able to use the buttons now since its been so modified. I'm interested depending on what parts you still have from the above asked list.

                        Thanks,

                          Yep, I kept all the buttons, bottom panel, and miscellaneous parts. In fact, I suppose you could plastic weld the button area back on (and then bondo and paint)... but for most people trying to mold the LCD into a double-din dash, you would have to cut off the bottom buttons anyways.

                          Everything you need to control the LCD can be accomplished via the IR sensor or Coyote's auto-power on trick.
