I was trolling through the junkyard in the usual Jeep section awhile back and I came across the Grand Cherokees. I saw that almost everyone of them still had the vehicle information center display still in them. I seen online that these displays show the time and date among other things like issues with the vehicle and a top image of the jeep showing whats wrong. That's when it hit me; I'm going to make a clock for my room out of that!
There are two videos of the complete project below.
