PostSubject: Rear DVD Screen   Tue Sep 01, 2009 2:31 pm

My original japanese cd/md player has been cactus for a while and I want to replace it with a DVD system, with an external screen in between the rear air con vents in the roof, see image. I have seen a few vans with this setup, but I was wondering if anyone has done this retro fit themselves or has any advice to offer, particularly about mounting the screen.



Cheers

Sounds good, but isn't the rear aircon condensor in there.

Great idea. Keep us posted if you have a go. I would think a flat 10inch screen on a vesa mount would fit fairly flush without cutting a big hole

My SC has a storage hole with a lid there so I doubt there is anything there in the one pictured above.
My storage thingo is 130mm (H) x 150mm (w) x 150mm (l)

I have a No Name brand DVD player + roof mounted screen I've never used. Anyone interested for $75?, cost about $400 new, has not been used still in the box. Pick up in Sydney only. Hey Admin, how about a for sale section?

$75 ! yeah

I'm moving down to sydney at the end of the month. Which is what prompted my interest in installing a dvd setup, to keep the kids occupied on the trip down. But I'm quickly running out of time to install it before then.

I Did It !

After about a month of contemplation and 5 months of procrastination I've finally put my screen in the back for the littlies.

I ended up using a 10.2 inch digital photo frame which plays divX movies from a USB stick, since most of my movie collection is digitized anyway. I mounted it using a couple of small speaker mounting brackets coupled with some picture frame hooks, ballcock washers and a cable tie or two, which turned out to be perfect. I only made four tiny holes for the screws and managed to squeeze a backing plate through the hole where the air con is, to strengthen it up a bit. I installed a new stereo at the same time and have got the audio output from the screen running back to the stereo.

Ended up setting me back less than AU$350 including the new stereo, picture frame, 12v power adapter, mounting brackets, all the cabling and a "pocket" to fill the hole left after replacing a double DIN unit with a single.

Woo - Hoo !
