I am about to. Just ordered a computer 8.9 inch touchscreen. I am looking for a spair dash center to rework to hold it. The idea is a web based menu to real time active suspension. Moving map GPS with weather and whatever else I can think up. Active radar jamming ....

^ I think everyone who has done it has been a one off type thing. Custom..

I would love to see one of our sponsors come out a kit that would fit a 7inch monitor. Gotta believe the sizes are pretty standard on most displays.

Edit: or just include the 7inch monitor as part of the kit..

If you get a screen and the outer casing close enough to the stock opening, you could probably install one and bondo or fiberglass it in to make it look factory. However keep in mind a lot of the options newer head units offer can do things like gps speed, engine status, and other things. Which may turn out to be a cheaper way to go.

All the ones so far have been custom one off jobs. I am looking into having mine redone and seeing how easy it would be to get it for others or supply them with the parts necessary.

I am also interested in adding a Screen to my 40th. I had no idea it would be so complicated...I figured they would just sell kits for them.

I may start if I can get a bezel manufactured for it.
