cool.. worried about water?.. I supose you could put the touch layer in between a layer of plexi or something.
Hi all bin reading quite a few of these threads so thorght ide post my project
I am going to fit a Pc to this machine
A 7inch touch screen will be inplace of the small LCD in the dash
with the computer in the boot!
The PC will be going in the topbox in place of the 6 CD player on its anti vib mounts
it will be the mini-itx c800 with a 40Gb 2.5 HD
the Monitor is going on here over the original LCD
first off get a new dash.
mark it up loosely
then cut a bloddy big hole in it.
fit rear of the LCD case in correct position.
then glass it in
There are more images on my webserver
More pictures to follow
hmmm, surfing the internet while riding a motorcycle...
sounds like a sweet project! it will be a good challenge weather proofing everything!
daaaaaaaaaaamn that link is sick....

computers running on bench.
When have you ever seen a Goldwing out in the rain!! no seriously water should not be an issue as the screen will be in a sealed box like the LCD thats there allready.Originally Posted by neon_eddy
the touch screen will be covered by the stuff you use for ovrhead projectors and clamped to the screen with a rubber seal. Clamp will be perspex as its easy to work with.
i dont think waterproofing the screen would be a big deal, however maintaining the touchscreen functionality is another story.
How do you plan on overcoming this?
...you should put this in the worklogs section before someone flames you
