    Here is my finished Car PC. It's an 8.4 inch screen and it was a bear to get it to fit with a factory look.

    What did you use to give it that rough look on the left and right of the screen?

      It's pretty standard ABS Plastic. I got it from a local car audio shop.

          How big is the full opening?

          How big is the full opening? Would a 10.4 fit inside it?
          thanks

              Yeah I agree.. My 8.4 inch screen touches the top of the AC controls and I had to remove the knobs that close and open the vents. The top is touching the bottom of the vents. Maybe some sort of widescreen 10 might fit. If someone gave me some physical measurements I would check to see if it fits..

                    Yep, Mine is not a wide screen. I got a deal on the screen. Maybe I will switch to the widescreen. Yours looks very nice.

                        I would go with the widescreen. It's a better fit. You can see the difference on the above pictures. I will take a daytime shot and show it. I had to lose my AC controls to fit the non-widescreen.
