Picture of a monitor installed below the dash?

Anyone have one? I'm thinking if I install a monitor in my car that I would rather have it installed below the dash in front of the shifter rather than in the double din spot. I thought I saw a pic on here but Ive searched and searched to no avail. Thanks

i want to put a Nav system down there so it wouldn't obstruct the A/C controls. Were the parts bolt on are fabricated to fit? I have no experience in custom enclosures on the the dash yet.

It is but when it comes to functionality, it's not a very ideal place to mount one. If you’re using the screen as a primary radio display or for a navigation system, you have to take your eyes off the road for far too long to view it. Mounting the screen in the double din spot makes it much easier to view.

true, I might have to mount the radio down behind the Shifter, and install the nav system in the double DIN area. I woudl like to know the materials used to install pieces used to cover the mounting areas. fiberglass, wood (type), metal, or combination.

that is dope! how were you able to mold without any cracks? I want to get one of the radios that have a thumbwheel attachment so I won't get into a wreck while driving. Nice setup though!

Its one of those overhead flip down monitors. First I took the whole casing apart and just saved the plastic piece that goes around the front of the lcd. Then I dremeled out a big hole in the dash piece I got from ebay. Then I mounted the plastic piece in the dremeled dash piece and used some hot glue to get the position I wanted. Then I used some abs plastic and cut and fit it around the lcd plastic piece and expoxied it in with plastic epoxy. Then I covered the plastic with 3M Automix EZ Sand Rigid Parts Repair and sanded it all smooth. I have a hairline crack that I have to fill in. The problem is that the dash piece is flexible and when pulling it out of the dash its easy to crack. The headunit is in the bottom DIN held in with the stock stereo brackets. There is nothing attached in the upper DIN and the monitor overlaps the upper DIN.

Nice! Alot of work was put into that setup I praise you! I wish I had alot fo time for a project like that. I just see lot of opportunity within our cars' dashboard configuration. I mean it's mainly me driving my car unless I have my wife with me on a date. I sometimes get lost driving and I stop to ask directions before I roll into a bad part of town and get jacked! Using a navigation system will help prevent that from happening. I want the screen to pop out from the dash and fold up when in use to minimize driver distraction. When I'm finished with it it will fold back down in to the dash. The ABS plastic that you used is that readily available at a store?

here you go
http://www.cardomain.com/item/SOUIECABS316

ALOT of good info is on www.mp3car.com



I saw the monitor on sale for 200 on cardomain thats why I got it to begin with. It was like 30 bucks more than the 7.5 inch ones so I was like screw it. This is just something that I planned to put in at car meets or shows, the ac controls aren't connected. Its not practical at all and I definately wouldn't keep it in all the time. I really got alot of respect for people that do their own work on their cars. You don't realize how much time is involved with this sort of stuff until you do it yourself.
