Default LCD monitor in glovebox door

I know I have seen this done before but I don't remember where or who. But a bonneville had an LCD screen monted on the glovebox door just like you would in the headrests. the square was cut out in the door and the screen was placed inside.

I was thinking about doing this to my car and if I don't like it, a new door wouldnt be too hard to find. LCD monitors are cheap and the mobile dvd players aren't bad either. I was thinking about spending under $500 if I go through ebay. Any suggestions? Thoughts? Thanks

There was a guy who did this, but I don't know where the site is.

This was the closest I could find, but I think you're talking about a neater install

i'm thinking this is a good deal cuz it has the adjustable angle to match the glove box surface and with that option you can tip for beter lighting conditons too.

and it'* a good deal if you act fast! 18minutes and counting!lol

nah thats too bulky

all i have to say is you better be good with fiberglass because the contour of the glove box door is far from straight

I did that in my car too, but I made a fiberglass trim panel, and it was a 5.6" screen. Thats small now but 3 years ago it was BIG.
