After the disappointment of finding the Official Pi Touchscreen wouldn't fit the original sat nav cluster I picked up for my car I picked up a 7" HDMI touchscreen from eBay.

Out of the box it also didn't fit, but with a bit of work it is almost fitting nicely.

I removed the pcb from behind the screen to allow the screen to slot in a bit easier, and used some cutters to remove some of the offending plastic from its way.

I'm next going to cut down the pcb to allow it to fit.

Once that is done it's time to fit it 😎
