    Thats really interesting. The reason I didnt mount mine there is because it wouldnt fit in the CD changer space. I never thought of moving the amp up there and mount the MB like you did. I might have to redo mine now from behind the driver seat.

    this is the only place i could really mount it, because of the size of heastink i have, i had a smaller one, but it sucked and was overheating doing nothing

    screen part 2

    after getting the new aluminum screen from jon i though i would post my progression.

    had to take the car apart again to get to the screen. i got another radio cage, since the one i used before is now not usable for a aluminum version.
    in this one i am doing something slightly different then before. instead of it being hard mounted i am going to make the screen tilt, and be on a motor, so its adjustable. i am doing this by using a old cdrom tray. i am using this because when it reaches the perfect setting it lock into place but can still be put flat.

    i did the major part of the movement weeks ago but here is where i am right now



    a more close up look at the cdrom reversed.



    yesterday i chose to use a silicone adhesive to mount the screen. its clear, easy to use, and can be removed later.




    now all i have to do is work out the hinging system, and connecting it all together. im going to be using some lego parts only because i have A LOT of them

    with some trial and error i was able to complete my adjustable screen. it didn't take me too long less then a week of work after work = P but i have archived better then what i had originally designed. instead of the screen only locking into place at one spot, is automatically lock into place, mostly, in any spot. if you push hard enough it will retract, but its about 5x harder then you need to push to use the touch screen.

    all the different pieces holding the screen into place, yes i used legos

    the push arm

    mounting tray

    back of screen with various leogs siliconed to it

    the screen out

    screen in

    the stuff you don't normally see ( where the sun don't shine)


    tomorrow i will mount it into my car. i started to use centrafuse instead of roadrunner, a much cleaner program for what i want to do.

    Looks great! Legos are perfect for a project like that... I once used them as a spacer to adjust my headlights. Where are you going to put the control (button, know, etc) to actuate the screen?
