    Question Hmmmm, where to fit my screen?

    I have my CarPC nearly ready to go. The PC is going into the boot/trunk and my XENARC 7 inch touchscreen is going ........ Eh.......

    I have a 2001 Nissan Primera and am looking for any advice or guidance on where to put/mount my touchscreen. If anyone has any previous experience or guidance on where best to install my screen that would be great.

    Also if anyone has any images of an installation in a Primera I would appreciate it.

    Thanks to everyone for for your time.

    Here's one moulded into a P11 Primera dash



    Your P11-144 will be different though. I haven't had a good look at a 144's dash for a while so I can't remember what they look like....

    OK here is some pics I found.

    My car looks somewhat like this :
    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/atta...id=14345&stc=1

    The main dash looks like :
    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/atta...id=14347&stc=1

    And a close-up of the centre colsole looks like :
    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/atta...id=14346&stc=1

    I am hoping to keep the headunit and centre colsole in tact so where does that leave me?

    Space underneath main console?
    On a mount to the left of centre console?
    Folding out from inside glovebox?
    Folding out somehow from below glovebox?
    Flipup on top of dash?

    Thanks again guys for the rapid response.

    How could I forget about this site for pics...Doh!!

    Looks like if you are willing to lose the vents and HU and relocate the hazard switch then you could mould it in. Or lose the HU and get an in dash one....

    HU looks 1.5din. I say mold a whole new dash below the vents and move the A/C down. Thats what i am trying to get round to doing.

    Actually i think that is with the vents removed and I didnt say anything baout removing vents

    There does seem to be a hel of a lot of wasted space int he middle of that dash. You could either fit a HU in their if you wanted one or I would try and relocate the buttons below the HVAC controls and move the dials down and keep the vents.
