  • LCD mounts

    My apologies if there is a thread elsewhere, I couldn't find it...

    I'm looking to install a 7" Xenarc LCD into a 2 din space. I've seen many pictures of these installs so I know it's done before. My question is, what kind of mounts are used and how is it attached tight and snug? Are there any 2 DIN mounting brackets? Or can one purchase an empty 2 DIN size case that i could mount the LCD onto that?

    use the case it is in and cut it up and mold it into the 2 din opening

      Won't it fall out easily if you hit a bump or pothole? What keeps it fastened? Velcro? Glue? Screws? Prayer?

        Yes, most people fab the display right onto the dash peice. You may find more information about this in the Fabrication Forum.

        I personally, have fabricated a mounting bracked for the display which holds the display firmly and is screwed nto the dashboard frame. Then modified the Front Dash peices so it looks like a seemless integration.

        You won't find a perfect sol'n because each car has a different way of mounting it in a 2din space
