Interior Planning – Ideas for Hidden LCD Touch Screen Receiver

   Posted by: kdavis

Since I’m a big audio guy, one of the things I want to do well on this project will be the AV stuff, but I don’t want it to look out of place.

I really want to use a touch screen LCD with my backup camera and GPS (even if I never use it.) This presents a “look” problem as it would likely look pretty out of place in the old school interior.

My solution brainstorming session today came up with an automated hideaway option that might work. It’s basically a motorized LCD screen receiver behind a plate/door in the dash. I’d need to do some metal work (which I’m doing anyway to get a nice console to dash theme going), and also some bracketing, but this might work.

Here’s the design.
