    Mounting the LCD inside the dash?

    This is what I was thinking of doing... I am going to make a mold into plaster of my existing dash piece (which is only about a 1'x1') and then shaping it into the dimensions on my LCD screen. Then just pouring the fiberglass into the mold and then I have my dash piece. But how do I stick the screen to the dash piece? Do y'all just use glue?

    So you're going to place the screen in the middle of the current dash piece and then just pour bondo-glass to fill on the gaps between the screen and the dash piece?

    you can not "pour" bondo-glass but yes. the stock radio opening is just a hire to small for the 7" screen case, i will open it up but leave some overlap and use the bondo glass to fill inthe crack sand it down and paint it black.

    this is a good how to on the incorperation of stuff.

    it still would not hurt to epoxy any place you can first as it will hold stronger than the bondo-glass

    Do Xenarc and Lilliput screens come with a case like ::THIS::? This is really important to mounting it into my dash.

    The Lilliputs do not as far as I am concerned I have never seen them come w/ them nor have I seen them advertised. However I can't speak for Xenarc, my assumption though is no!!
    New CarPC on the way again I think. I miss my old one!!!

    I got the picture off www.digitalww.com it comes with one of his 7" LCD's but it isn't touchscreen. And I don't know if there is any cases for the lilliput that's what I was trying to find out.

    The name of the images is a headrest shroud. So you might look for empty shrouds.

    Here's some without prices: http://www.millertech.com/headrest-lcds.htm
    I'm a newbie - so not sure if these would work. http://www.carmobilevideo.com/category/1.lcdmonitors/
    Here are more monitors - but not shroud only: http://www.qualitymobilevideo.com/6-8headrests.html

    Hope this helped.
