I'm in the plotting and planning stages of a build. I'd like to see a full backglass and have noticed no one else has one. These are some ideas, tell me if you'd think they're feasable.
Special glass- to magnify the monitor size
Backglass projected- projector mounted under the lockdown bar projecting on to the backglass.

Closest we have come is this ..... although I think I could have squeezed in a 50" for the BG


Its close, but not quite there


Interested to see what you can come up with.

The other option is to get a custom made square lcd monitor.

Very cool Dedrok! I experimented with two 40" monitors years ago with FP with nice results.. but could not afford the final build.

This seems to be a "full backglass". Two identical monitors.
