    A few people have asked for it...it's gonna cost a bunch to ship from Taiwan: $88 to ship 20 screens. I'm thinking I'll just have to do a bigger order like that and then maybe sell the screens themselves in addition to putting them in the inclinometer. It seems like there aren't any US companies that sell those screens here so maybe I can corner the market. :)

    I'll probably place an order early next week. I'll post here when I do.

    Here's a little preview of the enclosure I'm making for my own truck. It'll go in the roof console sunglass holder that pops down. I'm not sure how many other folks would want something like this (as opposed to a simple window suction-cup type enclosure) but if there's interest I'm open to making them available!

    I'm interested in a sun glass holder. Possibly if it was removable.

    I tried really hard to make the in-dash mount work, but I don't think it's gonna come out how I want it to.

    I'm going to keep trying though!

    That looks really good Rob! Great wood working skills!

    I'm gonna try my hand at making a bump out for my dash out of plastic and fiberglass. What could possibly go wrong?

    Would it be possible to get the temp and compass input from the stock overhead console display to work with this unit?

    Still a great idea. I'm not sure how well these are selling, but if this could fit into and replace the current temp/compass display... well I know I would buy one. That wouls also solve the inside only temp limitation, if it could draw from the sensor already there.

    Just my thoughts, nothing inflamatory meant by them. You did a really great job, with what you have there.

    Let's be honest... you really only care about your own rig.
    Well done, my friend. Glad to see it came to fruition. This should easily be able to be installed somewhere in the dash or in the overhead since the boards and connections can be condensed so small.

    I'm playing around with a 4x20 LCD (green on black) so it can show more information on one page, but I don't have serial LCDs so I have to rewrite the code a bit :) I'm also looking at smaller screens so I could install it behind the smoked lens of the overhead console compass/outside temp module.

    email sent just in case, but I see it's been awhile since anyone posted here. Is your product still available? VERY INTERESTED, no, scratch that. Will order! :hungry: (the kit, not the enclosure)

    Hope you haven't disappeared!
