pictures of digital clock mounting and space?

I would like to see some photos of the digital clock and the space where it is mounted. I want to swap it for this LCD panel, but I need to know if there is enough space behind there. I would also like to see some photos of the backside of the strip of trim which holds the clock.

If there is enough room i will buy an extra piece of trimming, cut it out and mount the LCD in it.

i've got no pictures, but its very limited space back there.

Whats your plans for the lcd pannel?

if you want to see for your self, its very easy to take off. take off the triangle piece n the side of the dash, then take off the screws for the black trim. Theres the retangle clip that covers 2 screws, and the circle air vent has a screw in that (that twists 90 degrees to take off the cirlcle thing) and you need to take off the black pannel from the climate controll unit. (sliders pull off, and black pannel upclips. and theres 2 screws to take off the black strip.

Thanks Pauly, but I won't be able to do that for some time as I am swamped in work. If no one has any photos of this, I'll have to do what you said and figure out for myself after x-mas some time. No worries thought, I'm in no rush. It's just that I would like to know the details so I can make my daydreaming as accurate and precise as possible

you panel looks much thinner than the clock. I have one to post (for sale) and should be taking pics tonight. It attaches with a couple of really small screws fastened to the trim strip.

The clock is 45mm X 40mm on the face and is 35mm deep - there is a little more room around it behind there but not allot - The cigarette lighter is next to the clock and is 60mm deep. So there may be plenty of room with a custom face plate to fit the panel...Face may be as big as 85mm wide and 40mm tall (Without Cigg, lighter).

Thanks for the info.
Do you mean that the space for the trim strip is 40mm in height. Like this?
If so I will have to find another way, or do you think I could put the PCB of the LCD behind the edge of the dash itself? Like so:

You'll never get that mounted behind the dash - the trim strip pretty much has to go straight on and there's not enough room with the hazard switch mounted to swing in in.

Kind of a negative attitude.

Maybe the lcd could be mounted up in the dash before the trim plate is put on.

I'm building a cheap digital gauge and datalogger, hopefully with GPS as well. You can read about it in this thread.
