I've seen pictures of a dash with a screen in where the radio is, but it wasn't widescreen. I'd imagine that would be a bit of a project if it'd even fit. My preference would be to put it in a custom floor console, right up where the ashtray is. That way, other people on the road would be less likely to see it too.
Here's the picture I mentioned earlier. Please don't display in the thread to save bandwidth.
thats a straight up tv....
i like the drop down console idea, but tell me what yall think about this, this was my idea for the roadmaster, but money didnt permit and then...the accident
anyways, i was gonna put a 7 or 8 inch touchscreen in place of the stereo (1),
in the trunk or somewhere hidden i was gonna build a mid-tier computer, bout 2.5Ghz with huge storage capabilities, like 200 or so gigabytes, lotsa ram a good vid and sound card, not a gaming behemoth but fast enough to play dvds and music videos and music.
i was gonna run the ide cable to the cd/dvd drive all the way to the glove box and put that in there along with a usb port for hookin up the digital camera/i-pod or watever else
in the cup holder/armrest (yall know wat im talkin bout) i was gonna put another touch screen at a slight angle (2)
i was maybe gonna have a flip down on the headliner (3) or maybe two.
so the plan was:
winamp is fully skinnable, and with photoshop skills, you can make some awesome skins and itll have the exact look you want, you can control button placement color shape size everything. so i was gonna skin winamp with some big nice buttons and maybe a woodgrain style interface like i did for this mixvibes skin
then, screen 2 was gonna be the virtual keyboard, which i discovered a few years ago when mom got mad cause i was always online so she took my keyboard, but not the mouse i had to click out everything i wanted to type but with a touchscreen theres no clickin involved mwahaha, (btw the keyboard comes in handy when searchin for specific songs in your winamp playlist)
screens 3 and 4 were gonna display the music videos or dvds or watever was playing at the time
