    My computer will probably fit below the drivers seat (laptop already prepared) but I'm strugling with the screen
    It must be perfect 6.5 inch or it will not be at all. Maybe 7" could fit somehow but I don't want to buy to findout that it does not fit.

    Do you want to buy ready-to-play 2din carputer? There are a lot of those...

    No, I want to make my own. Im designing an enclosure and everythng that I think will be really cool if I can manage to get it built.

    Where are you planning to mount your screen? What kind of space do you have to fit it in?

    And ideally, I would want a screen that is a little bit shorter than a full 2-din, so that I could squeeze in a slim CD or DVD drive as well.

    Look at the picture in the third post. Thats the same interior as mine, but insted of color screen I have smaller yellow screen which will go away ind in his place 6.5 inch VGA screen must fit!

    The hole size is also mentioned in the first post, please read it.
    I like your idea for a CD player, but I will leave the factory radio for cdplaying, and will use the laptop cdrom for other types of data transfer if required. USB port will be below the radio and airco controls.

    hmm, yea. that would be a tight fit for the eeePC screen. It would fit lengthwise, but might notin erms f height. Or at best, some of the screen would be blocked off by the bezel.

    I like your idea though, and it seems like that would be a good spot for a 6.5". If you find one, please post it up. I'm still looking also.

    Hey man! I might have found a screen for you!
    Check this out: http://www.hiinfoglobal.com/carpc/end651.html

    There is another version without the CD-ROM slot. I'm thinking about buying that one (D650) and taking it apart for installation in my dash instead of original screen. (my original radio stays in place)

    I have send "them" an email about the price. I also have detailed specifications about those two screens - I can send them to you if you want.

    What do you think about these products?

    EDIT: Got some answers!
    1) Our Screen D650, is 6.5 inch screen, the Visiable size is, 144*78.24mm.
    2) Pls check the D650, http://www.hiinfoglobal.com/carpc/end650.html , and the JPG attached.
    3) The whole size of D650 is, 178*172*100mm, you could calculate , whether it can install your motherboard in it?

    The price is,

    Model: D650 digital touch screen
    1) Price: US$ 285/pc , for 1-200 pcs
    2) Air Freight : US$ 140/pc, TNT to door
    3) Delivery time: 3 days after receiving the prepaid by TT.

    *Above prices are for standard configuration
    *The price is valid from 5th, Aug,2009.

    Cool, thanks for the link. I cant tell though, is that just a screen, or an entire 2-din computer?


    btw, I really like this one:
    http://www.hiinfoglobal.com/carpc/ent650.html

    I found it on the same site as the one you linked to.

    D650 is "only" a 2-din touchscreen with integrated FM radio, and amplifyer!
    D651 is the same + cdrom. No PC in both.

    What I'm worried is wether the touchscreen can be sepparated from 2din casing and FM radio and from amplifyer. I would drop all that away / don't need / have no room for that.

    Your link shows exactly what I need: 6.5" touchscreen!
    But they are not manufacturing it - yet! I have asked them about it and it's a new product which nobody has ordered yet, so they are not manufacturing it yet. You must order a lot of them to make them start manufacturing it and I only need one, and together with you - we only need two pcs
    -> Other than that - it's perfect for my case!

    I have bought the non CD version. It was 550USD including p&p to sweden.
    I was a bit nervous since they only accepted payment thru western union. I think transfer of money was an additional 40USD. But the item arrived allright!

    No problem removing amp and FM.
