I know it's been done before, but here's my stealth screen. It's a Lilliput XGA touchscreen mounted in my double DIN slot, with a removable fascia (that was my old OEM head unit).
A short video of it all in action : -
This video no longer exists
Stealth Screen Video
The screen is actually inset about 2 inches behind the dash. This wasn't by design, just that without hacking the dash internally quite seriously this was as far forward as it can get. On the up side though, it keeps the sun off it, and I can get to the power and control buttons!
The only thing I need to do now really is make the screen mounting look slightly tidier, instead of screws showing everywhere
Very cool!! Wish i had a double DIN!! maybe in the next car....Originally Posted by e_fractal
Can you let me know how you went about converting your old factory head unit into a cover plate? It'll be a while before I can afford a Car-PC that is up to what I put the Jeep through (vibrations off road) although the Ipaq is doing a good job, but I want to replace the head unit soon...
I'm amazed at how effective that cover plate is. Any help would be appreciated!

Basically unscrewed the whole unit, then the front dettached. Had to mount all the knobs onto little plastic plates with superglue (as they usually fasten to the internals of the stereo). Then just cut 4 grooves down the sides, and put little "lugs" on the inside of the dash (you should be able to see 2 either side). The face then just mates with the lugs and sits nicely. After a little bit of hacksawing off the edge of the face plate.
How yours works will depend on how easy it is to dismember your head unit
Nice. Love the install and love the car. Hopefully one day I can get a 3000GT vr4.
very nice, sounds like a dance party in your car
