This is a question on the verge of general DIY/engineering and car modification: I am planning to mount a turntable/gramophone either in my car, or (an even stranger idea I know) on the exterior, i.e. on the car hood (possibly similar to the engines sticking out of the hood (like in the fast'n'furious dodge charger).
I have done some basic research and found pictures of a turntable mounted inside a car similar to the way car radios are placed today, which leads me to believe that in fact it is possible to mount it.
The problem I foresee is that the record may get scratched/destroyed, or the needle may get damaged, when the car is on a bumpy road. I therefore wonder - what are other possible problems with this idea, and how to minimize all (including the "bump" problem). If anyone has any experience with mounting similar non-standard audio equipment then I would also like to hear the problems they encountered. Also, I wonder whether mounting it "sticking out of the hood" or internally would make it different for anything else other than the sound volume and obviously usage comfort
