Mounting idea's for a Mazda RX-8???
Hello all, first post here
I'm interested in putting a carputer into my rx-8 and while I can handle the computer aspects of it, the mounting and display are a problem. My question is do any of you carputer experts have any idea's on where to mount a 7" VGA in this car. The obvious choice would be where the stock radio is, but I don't want to lose the functionality of the red LED. The second obvious choice would be on the top dash. However, there has yet to be a customized dash piece developed to house a 7" screen. I was thinking on mounting a bracket to where the ash tray and cigarette lighter are (at the bottom right below the climate controls). If I could do this I could then get a rotating bracket which would allow me to swing down the screen when I need to adjust the A/C or something. Do you think there's enough room and if so, any good places to look for brackets?
Any idea's would be more than welcome. Thanks a lot in advance :)
EDIT: btw...on top of the dash now is the navigation unit which is optional and I did not get (in hopes of installing a cheaper, and better carputer). Therefore, my top dash piece is completely smooth.
EDIT #2: wow sorry I just realized this should be in a totally different forum...sorry :(
Administrator: could u please move this to the appropriate forum...sorry again
