i made an enclosure topic, check it out. its nothing special, but it works.
i may grab another cluster enclosure and faceplate to cutup and experiment with to see if i can fit the MPGuino inside. dont want to cut up the original the car came with.

sorta like this....

That display is sweet FX57, though I'm guessing it was over $100 I had considered the nokia displays too.

As packaged, the mpguino needs button combinations to get into the setup screen and reset trips, not sure if the d-pad accomodates that. I'm sure you were aware of that, just sayin.

It definitely wasn't cheap, but its crisp and bright and has one nifty feature... it can hold a uSD card to store custom graphics and for data logging purposes, so you can put a $5 2GB card in there and have virtually unlimited storage for graphing MPG history or whatever.

The DPAD is a weird circuit, I don't know if all mirror controls are that way. But it has 3 switches in 3 of the corners so it works well with the stock code reproducing any combination of the 3 buttons, or with extra work can be decoded to get all 4 directions. I figured out a neat way to read the slider position with 1 extra wire.

Fx, I am drooling over that big screen you have. To display all that information at the same time, and as readable as it its, that is great! Although, mucho jumble of wires behind..

However for a display like that, I'd find places to stash all those cables
