    my order is on the way.
    burnt a big hole in my pocket.
    but really don't see a good way around without good fabricatin skill or service.

    fingers crossed.

    if the swap works, perhaps we can start exploring possibility of finding "blanks"

    I dont know if you noticed but only the last one (the one you ordered) is a 7"screen all the other ones are 6.5"
    This is also the only one that doesnt fold out
    Maybe you cant "have your pie and eat it too" due to space restrictions
    I have only seen the motorized ones in 6.5" configurations
    Good luck anyway I'm willing to help if you need anything
    I know someone with a machine shop that would probably be able to reproduce the enclosure

    I'm working on a design as we speak where I made a "double-decker" double din case out of aluminum I want to mount a regular 1 din radio on the top level,(where your CD/DVD would be) the computer on the bottom level and the screen in front.
    Trouble is that I want to make the screen fold down from the bottom, (not slide down 1/2 way)this way I can have access to the computer as well (for troubleshooting).

    yeah, id love to change out my POS motorized lilliput with a double din version that looks at least semi-stable with good build quality. (no offense to Armen whatsoever!!! it isnt his fault by any means)

    yup. I already have a DWW-700VGA (panasonic panel in non-motorised in dash) from Armen. I intend to see if i can do panel swap. pretty sure that inside is modular, but how modular is anyone's guess.
    worse case scenario is complete swap out, in that case, then i will look into mounting all my component inside and look into proper ventilation.

    Hey PTK...
    Could you please post pictures of the original screen and how it looks once you receive the Pyle? I simply want a decent double din video unit and the Pyle is cheap, but they only show it with that superimposed image on the screen.
    I am curious if the menus/user interface on the Pyle look nice or if the look ugly. For instance, how it looks when it is tuned to an fm station and playing...
    Thanks, Erik

    Hey ptk,

    Would you please post pics of the Pyle unit. I've had my eye on it for a while in it's unmodified state. I've been searching the web for what seems like forever trying to get some info on it and this is the first place I've found (in english) with someone who owns it. I just want to see how the images really look on this screen. I appreciate your consideration of my request.
