    I'm working on a project to install a car computer in my car. The next step
    is to put the LCD screen in the dash. I removed a double DIN spaced CD
    player and its going in there. To make it fit better I removed the "guts"
    of the lcd screen from its case and I want to attach this to the original CD
    player bezel and just install the bezel w/ the LCD screen attached to it.

    I ran into a snag when I started figure out how to attach the screen to the
    bezel. I purchased an extra one to play with so I don't mess up the
    original, but I set the bezel face down, then I put the LCD screen face down
    on the bezel, but I don't know how to attach it.

    I thought about fiberglassing brackets by molding them to the back of the
    screen then epoxying them to the bezel and sliding the screen down. Or
    perhaps hot glue gunning it in some how.

    I'm looking to see if anyone has any ideas on this part. I've included a
    link to a picture that shows where I am:

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
     
  2. Silicone. The stuff you use to seal windows and bathroom edges.
    Takes 24 hours to dry, but it works quite well as 'glue'.
     
  3. Yes, but....
    Beware that silicone RTV (room temperature vulcanising) rubbers, come in
    two distinct varieties. The commonest, contain acetic acid as part of the
    chemistry, and can cause damage to things like LCD screens, if applied to
    the edges. Look for varieties used in electronics, and trades like
    aerospace, that are sold as 'acid free'.

    Best Wishes
