    it was for the whole cubby/vent thing (the big thing you just pull out).

    for the sides i bought an abs plastic box and cut it up to fit the sides, then went and made some abs plastic sludge to adhere and round everything out.

    p.s. i'm pretty sure i covered this already, go check out the earlier pages in this thread hehe.

    OB1FoShoB: Hey I was thinking about attempting close to the same type of install after some brainstorming but mine was a little more along the motorized install type.

    This is what I came up with after thinking about all of the ways to install the monitor but keep a somewhat stock look to the dash:

    I was going to hinge the top of the monitor to the inside of the compartment lid, use a set of euro drawer slides from shop fox just like Tony N. did with his install but they would be painted black to attract the least attention.. along with the bondo being painted up. After all that I was thinking of trimming the clip off that is on the button which opens the compartment, that way the compartment could open and close by itself, but require less modification and painting while still looking stock when closed.

    Now as far as motorization is involved.. im seeking some help. So far I have considered the possibility of using cd rom drive parts to push the monitor outwards from the bottom of the monitor. The monitor would slide along the drawer slides and since it would be hinged to the top of the compartment, the compartment lid would open while the monitor slid out into an upright position; ready for use. The problem I am having is that I can't just go ahead and shove the whole cd rom drive in there.. I only need a few parts from it; the parts that push the drive tray out of the drive, and the button that activates that function. That way, you could use one button to either conceal or bring out the monitor for use.

    As far as your foldable, bendable, no crease material goes, my idea after brainstorming was to use pieces of black spandex on each side and have them stuck to the inside top of the lid and the inside of the compartment as well as the sides of the screen. Then you could stick a third piece of spandex between the two so that they would pull each other inwards when the compartment closes. That way you wouldn't have any fabric sticking out the sides of the compartment when it is closed and no one could see behind the screen when it is out for use.

    Hey nice ride and very nice install.
    I'm just getting started on my 02 SpecV. I'm ditching the vents. Look at all the room for a center channel!!

    Got started on it

    Sweet, post some pictures as it comes. I thought about doing that, but I'm afraid of dying from heat exhaustion without them hehe... that or my right side of my face will melt off while the left side gets all the cool air in the summer.

    Nice job!

    1 quick question... Is the screen close enough so that it's not a big hassle to use the TS?

    It looks like you have to stretch quite use it.

    Also, does the way that you mounted it help reduce glare?

    Peace,

    Rafster

    Hey Sentra owners I just got a 03 spec v 2 months ago and now have all the pieces for my carputer install. I am going to try to have the top cubby door open and have the screen flip up. It's going to be a lot of work and I'm going to try to take pics of everything to help others looking to do the same. You can learn from my mistakes . I really would like to try having the door open with servos or motors, but that would be a lot of work. I guess we'll see what happens.

    what a crappy job. you shouldnt mess with puters any more.





    kidding! wow!ts beautiful! gives me more ideas for my wifes 00 maxima. no little cubby at the top...but im planing something! and i have my box under the seat too. if i have to use the heat i just wont aim it at the floor. its a 2 door so it will warm up fine when its just on the upper vents only..and hen its hot i have a direct vent to blow cool air right onto the cpu. so good by you.

    SilverSpecV2003: I have to hand it to you... The spandex idea is pure genious!

    I never thought I'd consider buying spandex.


    If any of you guys came up with a working model, I'd love to see it.
