    Is there a manufacturer that makes a double-DIN ready VGA screen?

    Hey all. I've lurked here since '99 or '00, but I haven't had a car worth doing an in-car PC in. Now I've got an '01 Accord Coupe EX with a double-DIN spot just begging for me to do something nice. However, I'm real hesiatant about hacking up/bondoing my center console. So what I've been looking for (but not finding yet) is a VGA/DVI (not composite) touchscreen pre-installed in a double-DIN mountable enclosure. Does such a thing exist? I see a bunch of motorized single-DIN units, but yeah. If not, it should as it would take a relatively scary cosmetic barrier down for me and I'm sure others. Thanks in advance.

    Take carefgul measurements and look into the Mechatroniks double din enclosure for Lilliputs. It's made for Subarus, but I have one in my Toyota and it works great. The Honda double din is actually a bit larger, so it may not work well in yours.

    So the WRX pre-req isn't necessarily exclusive? That's neat. Because I saw it in the store before and went "this is exactly what I'd want! ... Except for a Subaru." :P I'm going to go measure right now.

    Hacking and bondo-ing the accords bezel is really easier than it looks. My friend helped with mine. There isn't really that much cutting that needs to be done for the accord. Right now, I'm helping a friend with a prelude do his and its a pain in the *** because of the cigarette lighter hole on the bezel. You can take a look at how I did it with a Lilliput 7" in a thread that I started in fabrication. Just search for my username in the sub forum.
