    without a digi-cam, it'd be a little hard. Also, my reverse cam got screwed up just recently. It still works, but the picture has gotten so blurry, that I can't even make out the objects anymore... The factory image looked better then the pictures I posted in this thread. Over time, me thinks my bass rattled the trunk too much which shook the lenses around hehe.

    Not sure what you mean by frames, it's just like a vid camera hehe... fluid motion, well fluid blur right now hehe.

    Here's my "rough draft" as it were of what I want to do. Made this one out of modeler's wood (real thin plywood...3/32" for the sides/back, 1/4" for the base). Can't find my original pictures with the step-by-step, so I went out to the garage and snapped these real quick. I SHOULD be sleeping. Anyway, I want to redo this in fiberglass/bondo to make it more rounded. Plus, want to paint it to look stock. Used headliner material. Can't tell from the pics, but the shades of grey are slightly off (bugs me). Back side is very crude but effective. Basically used old wire coat hanger to fabricate mounts that duplicate the way the stock maplight/sunglass piece mounts. Grab the rear of that thing and pull down. You'll see what I mean. Rattled like a SOB anyway. May use the oem piece as a base for my new & improved one.

    Sorry for size. Too tired to shrink.

    I assume that you only use that setu when stationary and not for GPS guidance, or have you completely replaced therear view mirror with a rear camera?

    On a seerate topic, did you get your car from Canada, or do Nissan place French language labels in all their cars throughout North America now?

    that's a pretty nice install Chosen1, just seems like it would be a bit hard to use while driving hehe.

    Use it for everything: GPS, mp3, dvd, internet. The pics may not do it justice, but it's actually very convenient. It blocks a very small bit of the rear view mirror....maybe 10% in the center of the top of the mirror. You wouldn't notice. For the view from the left (driver's seat), I put the camera right where your head would be and rotated it to the screen (although it looks like I might've had it slightly zoomed). I get minimal glare (unless someone in the other seat is wearing white and has the sun shining directly on them), I didn't do anything I can't undo (stock piece will still go there and hide everything I've trimmed), and it's easily viewable from all 4 seats. Part of the reason I did this was to entertain my 2 kids on the road. It would suck if each had to lean to the center of the car to see the screen. Eventually I'll add monitors for the rear and put my a/v switcher to use. But that's WAY down the road, after the Xbox is mounted under the other seat.

    The label on the visor is English on the left, French on the right. Got the car in Fort Lauderdale. Who knows.

    It's pretty easy to use (although touchscreen quit working...gotta work on that). Have an RF remote with a mouse on it (X10 remote) to get me by until it's repaired. Have one of those tiny usb keyboards for the ps2 hooked up. Have used a 12" long wireless in there also at times. Currently mounting the slot-load slimline dvd/cdrw in the lower din along with an Audiocontrol Epic-160 (epicenter and dB/volt meter - 1/2 din). All a matter of finding time. Plus, I'm doing some performance mods to the car also, so that takes time/money too. I'm confident I'll never be "done" with anything in this car. But I enjoy working on it.

    gizak:
    Just curious, but what made you decide on 7" display? Did you measure or was the Xenarc 7TSV just a good deal?

    the xenarc 7tsv was ideal for me initially in both quality, price, and features. I then measured the area I had to work with and found it to be a damn near perfect fit, so I went ahead with it and so far so good!

    Cool, I was thinking of attempting your type of LCD install, but w/ an 8" Lilliput...I may have to change my plans a bit, since this is kind of a proven thing. Thanks

    mini-update:

    I finally got a new camera, not the best but it'll do until one is released with features I want... anyways, going off subject. Here's 2 pics I snapped this weekend with it showing the monitor fab area done.





    Next project: installation of Centrafuse 1.3 aka 2.0 beta <---is that somewhat confusing to anybody else? lol. What was pretty cool was that it was released on my birthday! Too bad I was busy partying to get it working lol.
