    Looks OEM -- fine job. And you couldn't pick a better guy to emulate.

    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

    I know this is probably the wrong place to ask, but do you have any other info on the integration? Did you input to factory stereo (I see it's still there below the unit).

    Yes I kept the factory stereo and used a small aux device to get the audio from PC to Stereo...I'll find some time to explain tonight or tomorrow night....

    What paint is that?
    Play with it, 'til it's broke.

    I'm impressed! That paint turned out VERY OEM! (as did the entire project, but from the pic angles, the paint looks surprisingly perfect!)

    The paint looks just like OEM and even better in my opinion, the only thing that bothers me is that I didn't quite finished my bezel the way I wanted....I'll have to get back on it when summer comes back!! Thanks for the comment man, I appreciate!!
