    I don't have Lilliput screens or enclosures to try it out. But from the measurements, it looks like it will fit into the EBY-701 enclosure.

    Would there be anything that makes it hard to craft a case from scratch?

    I'm not so sure. The EBY701 looks to be wider, but I can't find the exact dimensions yet. The 669 panel certainly would fit, according to this:

    Samsung Panel Dimensions:

    Active Area (mm): 152.40 x 91.40
    Outline dimension(mm): 163.20 x 104.0

    Lilliput 669GL-70NP/C/T :

    Dimension(mm): 165L 104W 6H

    Any way, I would still need a headrest bracket for one or the other.

    Not sure I got your point? You mean, it should be easy? The problem is that it's difficult to do a high quality, oem looking job. Without CNC plastic moulding machines and stuff. You could use fiberglass and paint it glossy, sparkly blue, and make it "custom", but I think this is kind of cheap.

    Or I guess you could ignore all that and simply put it behind the headrest like this, but I'm not so sure:



    ^^^ Just the panel, no plastic enclosure or headrest mount.

    Definitely not thinking it will be easy.. But my dash opening is wider than most 7" displays I think. So I am going to need to do a fair bit of fabbing anyway.
    I was actually planning to initially make the case out of wood to get the size and shape right. Then either make the same thing out of a more suitable material or coat it somehow..

    I have never owned any of these monitors before though let alone pulled one apart so is it as simple as making some slots to rest each omponent in or is there something more complicated that I might be missing?
    Basically my intial attempt was going to be like a picture frame with a slot for the screen and another for the controller board.

    In the dash you could use a double din frame as a base, mod and cut it to fit. Keep in mind that touch screen, specially resistive, requires some pressure to work, so if the screen moves when you touch on it, that won't be good for the electronics inside, or the quality feel of the whole thing. It has to be screwed somewhere firm. In the headrest, you'd need wood glue/fixed to the poles, than a headrest enclosure mount screwed into the wood, at least that's what I'm thinking.

    ^ +1

    for custom fabbing a screen to the dash, i really like the idea of using a dd bezel as the base.

    many have used the case that the screen comes with, but that requires a lot of work because the controller board mount to the rear panel that gets removed in a dash fab..

    a bybyte bezel, or indash dd bezel will include all the required hardware to mount the screen and the controller board, so it would make fabbing a mount that much easier..


    for what to use, wood is sometimes ok-- many times people like to use that as a base for fiberglass work. i suggest you do some research into fiberglassing before taking this route so you are familiar with the tools/parts needed (there is a sticky about fabbing a bezel in the fab section). i don't think that it is any harder then other fab techniques, but it requires some different stuff that many do not normally have on hand, and sometimes, it requires a larger attention to detail.

    otherwise, using ABS sheeting might also be a alternative-- it depends on the application..

    Makes sense..
    I was worried I would cut up the case so much that starting from scratch would be better. But if I can get it in a lilliput case then that is an oprion too.
    Was planning on mounting it solidly, although these are resistive?

    Have to look closer, don't have any plastics fab skills at all, hence prototyping in wood first and checking it works, then figureing it out later.

    Thanks for the advice, still in very very early planning stages

    Yep, his install is a reference for me. I did a search and found this:

    VM70 vs Mini Touch 700 vs other decent monitor?

    So he uses VM70. A little googling and found this 9" Touch, VM90, VGA+AV1&AV2 for $169.00.

    It looks like the Mo-co-so MiniTouch would be better than the VM70; but there's no 9" Mini-Touch, and I'd rather have 9" in my headrests anyway, if I had to pay more for it. (there's also a very interesting 8" capacitive for $195)

    Well, never heard of short-circuit, but Hijack says good things about them, so I should consider.

    currently, all of the screens that are used in this hobby, except for certain screens from member tft_lcd_org use restive touch screens-- he custom mod's some screens to have a capacitive touch overlay.

    i kind of think that plastic modding is easier then fiberglass, and imo would be the next step after using wood. mostly because you can use flames to form the plastic, and it is all glue, and sanding. fiberglass is a little more complex with the resin mixtures, layer thickness, and lots of sanding and filling, sanding and filling until you get the desired look...

    honestly, for a single small project, i would prefer to use plastic instead of fiberglass.. if you have some intentions to make other fiberglass things, then it would be a different story...

    Sounds more my style
    Yeah plan and test in wood, finish by making out of plastic I can shape

    Think I better start a planning thread..
