Case: chasis from old deck with a little adaptation;
Front panel: this is tailor made glass (cheap one simple glass) - then car wrap 100% black on the back of glass with rectangle space for screen (this is the moment where you need precision or use local car wrapping company ) and on the front of glass there is tinting film for car windows (to reduce contrast between screen and black frame).
Costs (but please notice - this prices are from my country which is Poland and my own experience, each region could have diferent prices, except pi2aes - it cost now 2021.02.07: 150$ without shipping):
chasis (old and used one): 10-20eur
glass front with wrapping: 25-30eur
screws and slats for fixing the screen, connector, cables: 5-10eur
hard work (ok maybe not necessarily hard but own ), some programming in css, couple changes in setup, patience: only time and frustrations
Small update for volumio3 - there is whole plugin prepared and working with volumio3
It allow you configure (click by click) various looks also for 1920x480 screen - but you need volumio subscription. All you need is only use my userconfig file (which give you propper size and scale settings for this kind of display).
Good news is there is also peppymeter plugin (which works and looks awesome) plugin which is working with 1920x480 resolution (this one is available whithout volumio subscription)
Thanks you; I didn’t - I don’t use it as touch display (although it is touch screen) - If you need it touchable - it cannot be behind such thick glass. I don’t need it to be touch screen (for me touch screens in streamers are useless) - it is located about 3 meters from my listening position
Thanks - no I don’t really need it either. I saw you had a touch screen and assumed and then questioned. So could I buy the non-touchscreen versions in the link you gave and it will still work the same with your customisations?
One, last question. I find that when I edit the CSS it gets overridden when I upgrade Volumio system. Have you found a way to get around that?
