hey people just wondering what sizes of lcd/tft screens i can get a hold of thinking of getting a smallest one and put it were the clock/trip computer goes, i just want to run a corde from like a portable dvd player or ps2 or slim SOMETHING to just spice the dash up a bit, even though it would be a small screen it could still play decent things,



if not i think the macaroni bits and glue gun comes out and i might modify something like heyna.

3.5" is the smallest I have seen. About the size of your eftpos card.

nah i wouldnt bother with a game boy screen lol ... unless u simply wanted it for a new climate control/clock/trip comp screen hehe.

If you were going to id just at least look at trying to get a 5.5" like what u see on visors....this is at least a decent enough size that you dont have to squint tooo hard to make out wats goin on :P

If you have a fairmont/fairmont ghia, make sure not to destroy the thermostat in the vent above the lcd trip monitir/clock.

hay man. on and ea to eb you can fit a single din flip out screen where the clock normally goes. u do need to take off a bracket, but once that is done there is plenty of room. i am in the process modding the dash atm to fit a cd player or a flip out screen
