Is the bezel going to stay white? Or are you going to make it black like the rest of the dash?

Anybody have photos of a 1 DIN cut out in the dash (before equipment is installed...like for the Alpine TME-M790 motorized screen?

What I really want to know...is there anything behind this dash that needs to be removed before cutting into it when installing the Alpine TME-M790 in the same location as in this PIC??

The passenger side ac vent tube will either have to be removed or modified to put it in that location.

Motorized touchscreen out of the center vents. Not much visible dash cutting after completed but it's hacked up underneath.

Marcus how difficult was that installation?

Im favouring all three screen installs:
1) the JDM-ish style looks good but I dont like the idea of people seeing it, another problem is how well would that work with the pioneer navigation set up?
2) I like the 7" motorized screen, its different but looks a little out of place when screen is not out
3) I always enjoy seeing the stuff Marcus comes out with, very nice. Touch screen? How well would it work navigation wise?

7" would be a little small for the vent area, mine is a 8" and fits just right.

Yes, it's a Kenwood touchscreen interfaced with the Kenwood navigation system and has another video input to the R-F RAVDVD1 headunit for MP3 tagging dispaly/directory structure navigation and other various things. The other video input comes from a TV tuner tox.

Here's some better shots

Installation for the motorization was very difficult. Manual slide operation is easy.

Hmmmmmm I love the idea but yet I fear the complexity. The 7" screen I was referring to was in the picture of the s2k with the red interior using the 1 DIN set up.

It is a bit complex, but I may be able to save you time or the installer you go with some time (and money from your wallet) if you'd like some tips on how to do it.

It took over a month and a half to come up with a working design, you may not want to be without your car that long or not even want to spend that kind of money just to have a bunch of guys with pencils, paper and a tape measurer trying to figure it out.

There's no need to reinvent the wheel, I've already bought it and I'll share.

Then again, you may not want to even go this route unless you've seen it in person. I'm working on a short little video of how it operates and I'll post a link when I get it done. Still pictures do it no justice because there was more to the design than just sliding in and out, it had to be nearly silent when operating and have safety precautions like not working with the door is closed, a recovery mechanism if there was a power loss in the middle of an in/out mode, power disconnect switch for security, a tray design that was smooth and strong enough to take up to 200 pounds of impact force from the sides, a slide tray that would clear the headunit face and have the screen at the proper angle so that when it was fully extended, no visibility would be lost on the screen.

We were 99% succesful in achieving all of our goals.

There are some other similar methods that people have done, I've seen a pic of a screen that came out of the top of the dash and was concealed when down. I didn't go this route because of the visibility loss out windshield. You can also remove the passenger airbag and have that lid pop up with the screen underneath.

I can't speak for everyone else feelings on the S2000, but Honda didn't leave much room for modification on the interior, it's just not in the cars design nature.

Marcus,

How is the screen to shifter clearance, would your hand hit the screen if you were to put the car into 1st, 3rd or 5th gear while it was down?
It is not what you see you should fear but what lies beneath.
