Looking good.
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Looking good. That display is right up my Straße and I'd be in the market for one.

I finally made some progress over the week end.
After many 3d print trials, I have finally found a way to hold the display in place securely on the dashboard. And this won't require any modification to the original parts.

Now, my prototype is ready to go in the motorcycle.
