  • Newb fitting carputer to Mondeo

    Based in the UK and completely new to the carputer scene (though I've built my fair share of normal PCs).
    My biggest concern is that I wouldn't be able to fit a 1 din touchscreen in the gap between my gearstick and the facia.

    Here's a couple of pics to illustrate:

    Dash
    Distance
    (wow, that looks dusty!)
    Um, it looks further than it is. The gap is maybe about 3 or 4 inches or so.

    Also, there's no way I can fit anything under the driver's seat. What are people's experiences of alternative carputer placement? I'd be worried about cables not reaching, getting interference etc...


    cheers..

    You have loads of room

    Hi deviruchi,

    Welcome to mp3car.com

    Having had a look at your pictures, i would suggest moving the stereo down into the bottom 1 din slot and then mounting the 1 din vga screen in the top slot.. you would then have plenty of room and clearance to use the touch screen interface.

    I had a very similar problem with my xedos 9, but all is now well.. I hope this helps.

    Regards

    Orchid

      If your interested in installing a Lilliput 7" in a For Mondeo '95, have a look at this url: http://www.carputer.no/index.php?nam...iewtopic&t=716 (Norwegian)
