  • How to modify Rear/Side mirrors for LCD display?

    I saw a guide on how to add a LCD display to your side or rear view mirrors, but I can't locate it anymore :/ Could someone give me information on how to do this? As I recall, they put the LCD screen behind the mirror...

    One way glass, Like they use for line-ups...LoL, Put light behind it and you can see through it.

        I would think, Just get the glass cut to the right size and put a monitor behind it, Should be simple enough. I did find a link to make one way glass.


        Formula for One-Way Window Glass


        I am going to have to try this it's your friend.

            I searched the site using google and didn't see any relevant topics. On another search I found the info I needed:

            Making a "window" in your mirror is a realatively easy process. Once you have your mirror glass removed and in hand you will want to use a small razor to scrape away the heavey "painted" backing (usually black or gray). This will expose the back side of the reflected "silver" surface. This reflective material can be removed with a pencil eraser. Note that anywhere you scratch away the backing "paint" your eraser strokes will remove the silver finish and make a "hole" in the reflective surface. work slow with your razor for a perfect edge and work even slower with your eraser and you will have a great finish. I typically use an electric eraser (drafting type) and a gritty ink eraser stick to work more quickly at removing larger areas. Hope this helps! post pics of your process!

              Yeah, but then you lose the functionality of the mirror where ever you scrath off the backing. if you used one way glass, When the monitor was off it would look like a mirror? I don't know if it will work, A monitor might not be bright enough behind one, But I want to see, I'll let you know.

                I never said a monitor, I said a display. You know, those 2 line ones? Display speed, MPG, temp, etc. 3" wide and maybe 1" tall.
