after seeing Tom's effort i decided to have a bash at it myself. So over the weekend i made the dash mount for the LCD putting it where the CD Player normally goes.

these are the guts out of the LCD.

Over the top of the no more gaps i put some septone fiberglass bond to give me a sold layer to work off.

The plastic work you've done to make it fit is very very good. But, due to the size of the screen, it doesn't look factory. I wouldn't go as far to say cheap and nasty, but I don't know if I'd do it.

Still, kudos to you. I'd be working hard to make it look as good as that if I did it.

just outta curiousity, did you use the original parts from your car to attach the lcd or did you buy an extra 1 just incase you want to revert back to stock?

i just used the stock bits as the parts that i hacked up are the same on all the corollas across the range.

Northy the screen is very lovely, but is there any information on the box that's contolling all the goodies?

yep sure ill post up the full specs tonight when i get home

That Asus box looks pretty nice Corey. I've been looking at cubes and they are all too bulky for where I want to stash the thing, I have contemplated doing an MDF install, but realised it was too much of a pain in the *****. Nice compromise. :)
