    Nice install Gizak, I like how you didnt sacrifice your airvents to accomodate a screen, I also like where you have your DVD drive, or what appers to be your drive. Justan overall cool install.

    Many people ask me what I do about the screen being so visible to would be thieves... well, here's my quickie "stealth" for my monitor area when I park it in those shady areas:

    Wow!!

    Did u mold the housing for the LCD yourself gizak? It looks terrific!!

    I'm the proud new owner of a 05 Spec V (looks almost identical on the inside) and would appreciate any helpful tips or pointers u'd be willing to share.

    WOW nice job, I'm thinking about doing something like that too but I don't want to mess up the middle console yet, wonder if its possible to make a flip up screen with the console for a more stealth look.

    Flip-up LCD idea

    Ok, here goes...

    1st let me say; I'm no graphical artist nor am I a car moder

    I am a computer geek so look out for the guts in my "Carputer"

    Ok, with that said - here is a pic and my idea best explained...

    RED = LCD screen
    BLUE = some sort of non bendable/creasable material (ex. like a boot around a shifter; more pliable) and of course a nice color to match the dash

    The LCD would be hinged at the top (in the open position - shown);
    it would be latched at the bottom with slide rails

    So pressing down would put the LCD in the "face-down" positin (thinking some sort of felt or padding below that)

    The non bendable material could be attached somehow to the back of the LCD, so by closing it, it would tug it above the LCD (back side) and away from the side of the dash from getting exposed

    I think spring loaded action would be nice here, depending on how hard a motorized scenario would be...

    That's exactly what I was thinking of doing good mock up, and the idea about the side rails at the bottom is an excelent idea.

    hey guys, nice to see some more sentra owners jumping on board!
    I just wanted to say, I thought along similar lines of trying to stealth mine in some way that it was hinged. My approach was a bit different, as I was thinking of hinging it at the bottom, and then allow it to lay back. There could be some kind of string/line that is attached to the roof of the door and pulls the monitor up when opened. I also though of somehow controlling it with a servo...but my head started to explode and I just got too impatient and went this route. I still wish I could have made some sort of stealth door, and may consider it again if one of you come up with something feasible and prove to me that it's not that difficult hehe. By the way, the Nissan dealer here told me that if I wanted to get a new top cubby, it's about $45 bucks from them...just a heads up if you're worried about breaking anything, it's not too bad hehe. Good luck, if you tackle the hinge project I wanna see lots of work pictures!

    Is that just the door cubby or the whole console with vents an all?, my dealer told me about $80-120 for the whole console, but I found one from an 01 sentra at the local junkyard for $10, now I have plently of spare parts sitting around , now I just need a screen, lost the bid on ebay for one of those super ts from yukie. The prices people are willing to pay for something from HK is crazy and no customer support. The prices went up to 177 then (add 34 for shipping) for that screen which people got before for 120ish. I think I might just go with a lilliput from mp3car store since for just $70 more and It has customer support and if its a lemon I can get it fixed easily.

    Also what type of puddy stuff did you use to fill in arears while frabracating?
