              my side back window

              Pics look far away cuz of my damn camera phone, that 11.3 is pretty big, I think im gonna go with 2 more flip downs next to this one, prolly some 8 inches or if not 7 inches, due to I like to lean back when i drive and the headrest screens would be hard to see

                  lets say ur in the car watching from the backseat how far is it away from you? can you see it well? because im tight on space (its a coupe) so from the back i want to be able to see it nicely, this is going to be for movies only though when the car is stopped or maybe somtimes for navy

                  thanks for all the posts + pics

                  edit : if i were to roof mount the screen it would be wayyyy to close for proper/comfortable viewing

                    na mines a coupe too and you can see it fine, if u want like a really good view in the backseat i would say go with some headrest monitors like some 7inches, but if you like to lean back like me when u drive, then do the flip down.....my bro likes to play his xbox in the back and says its a good view....you could go with something smaller like an 8in flip down or 10 might be alittle smaller.

                      yes but your car is much bigger than my civic could i see picks from the back seat during the day? i think i calculated the distance from the back seats to right after the sunroof (the only place i could mount the lcd) and its like 20 inches

                      one pretty impossible yet very cool idea would be to mount it inside the sunroof (the piece that covers it when not in use, not the glass ) but thats like 1 inch thick and im not sure if it would fit when the piece would slide back into the roof :S

                      thanks again

                        i'm planning to replace the dials in my MR2 to a 12" LCD screen, prob power it 12v+ from a clean source.

                          yea i will get some pics up tonight, as for putting it where the sun roof thing is i know what ur talking about, and it could be done but you would have to find the thinnest and lightest flip down monitor possible, I want to add 2 more flip downs next to the 11.3, like sizes 7inches but i gotta do some measuring b4 i buy any more flip down monitors....was thinking of going back to some headrest monitors but 8 inches, not 7's like me old ones, but like i said b4 i can ride with my seats straight up, i have to lean back.......ya feel me...so the whole purpose of having headrest monitors would be pointless unless i was out the car and was just showing it off or something.

                            yeah, i get it, thing is those headrests arent big enough and i wanted somthing centered, its not gonna be easy. this is defenatly going to be the "unique" part of my build (i use the "" cause nothings really unique nowadays)

                            cheers
