    Ok, I'm gonna put the screen in on Sunday, hopefully. So this is the part where I need feedback.

    This is how the monitor has been sitting lately, just to test out the system and determine how i like the feel of it up there:



    Now I could fiberglass it in up there, but I would have to remove the vents and maybe my hazard switch and rear defogger switch. I would have to move the hazard switch, but I've never in my life touched the defogger. So then it wouldn't look very stock. However, visibility of the screen would be much better than in the double-DIN space. Here is a general idea of what that would look like:



    Or I could put it in the double-DIN slot. Visibility is decent for driver and passenger. Visibility is not so good for thieves and power-hungry police officers. Not to mention the relative ease that this installation would give me. I would barely have to do any cutting. I would have to remove the cig tray and at least cut into the cig lighter. I would probably just take them both out and put in a CD/DVD drive under the screen. Maybe some USB ports



    Sorry about those pictures I should have had the flash on.

    Well, apparently there's not much interest for older cars here on mp3car specifically hondas i guess.

    Started fabrication. First thing to do was take out the seats and all the console:



    out it goes!



    Now I used the aftermarket stereo bezel and tray for a source of plastic Nobody sells sheets of ABS plastic around here.

    I cut up the trim of it and cement it to the outside of the lilliput frame:





    Then used the tray portion to construct my own bezel that's going where the cigarette lighter and ashtray were. My car is a non-smoking vehicle anyway.





    Then cement all that together, and you can see my external cd-rom adapter bay is in there.





    Now there goes my day off and my warranty for the lilliput . The ABS and MEK method takes a loooong time. I've been working on this off and on since 10:00 this morning and its 9:00 PM and I guess the rest will wait for another day. All I have left is sanding and painting, I will try to get to that throughout the week in my free time, since I can do that little by little.

    So you're you're going for the double DIN slot. I've got my display in there right now, but haven't got around to making a bezel. I'm very interested in seeing how yours turns out.

    Cheers,

    Yes, for now my sony vaio DVD drive is going in there. I'm stupid and I molded the dash piece directly to the external drive adapter, because I didn't want to fool with it not being flush or wiggling out of the slot I made for it.

    I may get a slot load drive and put it in there, but for now my shifter doesn't interfere with the tray opening. Although I think the slot load would make it feel more like a car audio system, less like a computer.

    Looks Nice. Keep us posted. I'm planning to put the Lilliput in the double din in the stock location. I was thinking of TMZ's bezel but can't decide yet. Can't wait til your done to see what it looks like.

    what is TMZ's bezel?

    I have it in, but I need to resand and repaint it. There is too much pinholing and shrinkage of the ABS to post pics now

    i too plan on installing my screen in the double-din slot. the screen i have (ebay 'super') is the correct width but too tall. i also purchased the same abs cement and plan on cementing the back side of the lcd bezel into the double din opening. i think screwing the lcd panel to the bezel itself will be difficult, so i may have to remove the entire dashboard. the reason i want to do it this way is because i think it will hold the lcd panel well. how is your screen mount held into the dashboard?

    also, i'm not sure how far back in i should set the screen. if i inset the screen, i believe glare should go down, but because the screen is already mounted low in the dash, will it help at all? what is your personal experience with the mounting location and glare?

    ps - nice front end, i've been looking at getting a jdm front for mine, as its been partially destroyed by a toyota echo. where and how much did you get it for if you don't me asking. if you're in the us/canada that is.
