It's sounds like a good idea.
But how are you going to shuffle between songs?
you planning to get a remote?
then it will defeat the purpose of the lcd on the ipod since it's hiding...

No No No ... Use Acuators mannn !! ... Hide it in there like you want to .. but instead of puting it bottom first ... put it upside down, bottom first so that you can motorize it out and have it flip up like a motorized in dash screen ... :) .. It's not hard to do

It has the speedometer and stuff in the center tho.... wouldn't having it flip up cover that stuff while he is driving???

maybe slanting a little bit, enough to see the screen and the same time the gauges...

Yea Kate you're right But I don't think it should block the speedo that bad ... I've done a few installs like that at Best Buy so I'm used to it with acuators and stuff :D lol

I was just going to do it, so you could put it in and take it out whenever... so that I can add new songs to the Ipod and if need be put a friends Ipod in there...
