Question tv

As you can see I have a big hole in my dash the old TV dinosaur is gone and i want something with a bigger screen.

I would like to see what others have done before I proceed.

That cavern is 21" wide by 18.5" high. the lower tray with the wood will slide up for viewing.

Donny do not see why your can have it as wide as your dog house.
You need some kind of metal triangle bracket mounted to your flip-up mount for mounting to LCD holes usually four screws.
The new LCD's are thin and light. I would favor the top of box with the top of LCD.
Under the bottom of LCD a door or just finished piece of wood to dress the bottom opening.
Good luck with project and post a finished pic.

I concur with you but was hoping some how and idea would come up with a way to put in a tv that is bigger than 19 inches.

I will lose some dash space but I am looking at a 26" unit. I can make a wooden support system so a cheaper small mount can be used.

Modern TV's are wider.. If you can widen the mount.. Well do so.

If not then you will need to do some cabinetry.. Get the lartest flat screen that will fit.

Then frame it in, and put either a drawer or shelving below it (If it is a low mount, drawer, high mount shelf with door) and store video DVD's or such in the added space.

If you can "reduce" the depth... that would not necessarly be a bad thing either. but if you can't mount the TV on some kind of mount that lets you open it (IE Put a door on the front one that latches, and mount to the door) so you can put shelves behind the TV as well for additional DVD's Video tapes, Game machines or whatever you wish to stash.
Home is where I park it!
