I got a cheap 7" TFT screen on ebay, (even cheaper as it was second hand) and I thought I would share the install with you.
I did not get the before's so I got some pics from Ebay, not quite the same unit but near enough.
The screen works well from a viewing angle perspective and better from the passenger side due to the slope of the Cluster surround. The slide action of these monitors is good and does not feel flimsy at all, the resolution is medium but good enough considering the size.

The end result is a lot better than I thought possible when I opened the package from Ebay.

What do you think?
