    If I do not misunderstand you meant LCD computer monitor as 'flatpanel monitor'.

    I think the problem could not be about the hinges or so...
    Flatpanel monitors use different type of signaling than car lcd TVs.
    Except you have a TV receiver card in the PC and want to display it as a computer image.
    A simple flatpanel monitor is designed for home use, it wont tolerate vibration, temperature, voltage shocks.

      to turn anything into a "flip down"
      there ar 2 options
      a j shaped arm and a sprung gear will do it "fancy"...it'll drop slow and smooth
      or just some shocks like for the hood of your car.

      now from there it is size weight and what options the origional framing will do for you....or can you blow all that out and cnc machine something for yourself....
      in short...(too late)
      what can YOU do?

      1. how big is the monitor?
      2. will its side frames support its weight?
      3. will any of its frames support its weight?
