maybe a magnetic stand?
What are the options to mount LCD screen in the car? I have one of the 5.6" LCDs with a stand. Don't really want to drill holes and that sticky stuff on the stand is not strong enough. Looking for something pretty permanent but with ability to remove it (not every day but in case I need to sell the car) later.

There is some pretty sticky two-sided tape thats out there. I used it to mount my touch-screen to my LCD panel and when I tried to get the touch-screen off (because it got cracked) it was IMPOSSIBLE to get off, almost.

you could prolly modify one of these old skool cellular mount:
Its prolly what I will do, unless I look into fiberglassin a new dash.
EDIT: I just noticed it is discountinued @ partsexpress
sounds stupid, but my amp is being held down with stickyback velcro..... it was supposed to be temporary, but i never bothered replacing it... it may be strong enough.
oh well, just thourght id mention that.
I'm using ram mounts.
Overall length from base to base would be 7.25"
Retail prices are as follows:
The "U"stands for unpackaged which will save you some money.
You can use extra strength high temperature velcro like the kind that comes with EZPass (you might not have this where you are .. It's an automatic toll device). I got some at my local hardware store to mount my gps in my windshield. The stuff is really strong and I'd imagine it to be sufficient for your task... as well as being semi permanent.
This isn't like normal everyday hook velcro.. it's got interlocking knobs.
Did you know the plates that line nuclear reactors are held on by velcro ? (albeit a different type that is made out of metal..)
I've seen goosenecks that connect to the seat rail bolt. I'm not sure how stable that is, but it wouldnt touch the dash at all.
as for *truly* temporary adhesive, I can tell you the Garmin temporary pads are in fact pretty safe and easily removable.
I know nothing about those vendors... there are probably some retail places to get these.
I used to have a Clarion DSP unit mounted on one of these. it was fairly stable and took a pretty big bump to shake it.. but then again, it was about 3/4 the weight of a LCD.
Thanks all of you for input.
Got some idea now. Will try couple things.
More ideas are appriciated.
