  • 95 Chevy Lumina LS

    Well, I guess I first posted my completed project in the wrong area. Here is the finished product. Had a blast doing it and I'm always thinking of ways to keep adding onto the project. Going to build a new case for it in the next few weeks to save space. Feel free to leave comments. I'd love to hear them. Thanks for eveyone who helped me out when I was in need!

    nice setup looks good you could prolly find a way to fill in the side of the touchscreen over there to make it fit exactly in the dash...what all do you have in your carputer and whats the specs on it ?

      I really didn't want to cut the dash so the screen is taller than the opening for the delco radio.

          Good way to mount the screen when you want to do a minimal amount of
          cutting

            I got the plastics from work.
            I'll have to ask the guys I work with.
            I'll try to remember tomorrow!
            Sorry for the delay.
            Thanks everyone!

                Case is held in place by two "L Brackets" (Lowes or Home Depot)
                The back is pushed against the back seat and the left driver side of the trunk. Then two are on the right and the back of the case.
                Screwed the brackets using sheet metel screws.

                  maybe add some usb ports to either side of the screen to fill in some of that space

                    Thanks for the suggestion. I thought about that, but I have a four port usb hub between my seats to plug in usb devices.

                      I was just wondering how you powered your computer. (Sorry if its a noob question, but I am kinda new to all this)

                        i have a '97 lumina and would like to mount my screen similar to yours, but does the 1.5 din slot block any of the screen on the top or bottom? or is the entire screen visible and usable in these pictures?

                        i think my question made sense.

                        oh and, how is the viewing angle there?

                          Viewing angle is great for both the driver and passanger.
                          If you want to use the OEM opening you will sacrafice the screen size. This install was with out cutting the bottom opening wider. The screen res in this picture is 640X400. I had to use power strip to force the resolution and to drop the screen image down.
                          Right now there is nothing in my car. I'm currently making a new bezel for it. I dremeled out the bottom so i can use the whole screen. Pictures will be up soon of this.
                          Left to right there are no issues. If you want to make the screen flush as possiable to the front of the opening you have to FLIP (yes, flip) the screen upside down and make your graphics card software turn windows right side up. The bottom portion of the dash is rounded so space is a real issues unless you want to hack the dash and extend the opening more ( which i didn't do). Turning it upside down give you lots of clearance. I had to dremel down the inside of the air condition vent to give the Top (really the bottom of the screen) more room to fit. I'll get a picture up in when i get home to show you. The pictures will explain what i'm talking about. Do you have the same dash as me?
                          Feel free to ask as many questions.

                            yeah, i have the same dash. I personally don't want to cut my dash down, and i might end up doing what darky83 did here so that i can have a fullsize removable screen. but it seems like your setup does the job pretty well with the shrunken res in the 1.5 din.

                            also, where did you run the wires throughout your car?

                            i will have to give this some thought.
