    Touchscreen Speedometer (JM Exclusive)

    :laugh: :laugh: My Touchscreen Speedometer Build :laugh: :laugh:


    Okay, so Im back again to tear up my Celica and try out some more ideas. This time i wanted to convert my speedometer gauge to more of a digital look.


    Check My build vids on this project:


    Part 1(obvious where I start the idea process)- Digital 8in LCD Tachometer/Speed Gauge Pt. 1 - YouTube
    Part 2(this is where i tear down the gauge cluster to fit the screen and build the frame) - Digital 8in LCD Tachometer/Speed Gauge Pt. 2 - YouTube
    Part 3(i have built the frame not its time to test it out) - Digital 8in LCD Tachometer/Speed Gauge Pt. 3 - YouTube
    Part 4(FINALE) - Touchscreen Speedometer - YouTube




    So initial of course i had to break down my gauge cluster




    The only part i had to save was the actual odometer piece, because i need to save the mileage and the speed sensor is built in there.


    Fitting in was obviously a challenge solved by Mr.Dremel






    Once i got that in there, i could start taking the monitor apart. The circuit board of the monitor and the controller for the touchscreen fit beautifully inside my cluster and since I was making my own turn signals i drilled in some LEDS as well







    Everything fits niceeee







    So now i just need to build the frame using the bezel of the monitor into the bezel for the gauges










    put em all together and what do you have?
