    cherokee 2 din multimedia install

    its just a basic 2 din mp3,dvd,tuner,radio unit.. I wanted to make it look factory...
    first- i cut out the bezel big enought for the unit to fit.. I even had to cut down the ac vents so it would go back far enough..
    then- after mounting the unit, I glued a wood frame around the bezel to fit,
    then, i shaped it with bondo and
    painted it

    what do you think?

    the unit has aux inputs, I would love to a have gps,, is it possible to turn a desktop pc into a car pc? i have a decent one just collecting dust...

    thanks, im happy with how it came out... the only thing i dont like is that the headunit doesnt save the contrast settings.. every couple times i turn it on its all outa wack, not really a prob, just have to adjust em... I may do the whole thing over but this time make a carpc setup instead..

    SPcustoms... how much would you charge to modify the center console bezel like that?

    Ill give you that exact one for 75shipped... just remember this is only a bezel, you have to mount the headunit into position in the dash and move it around till the bezel fits... That was the tricky part, i even had to cut out some of the dash innerds...
    but i am planning on redoing everything so i wont be needing the bezel anymore....
    also since the pics, I repainted it for a better match with SIKKENS interior paint....

    That is a double DIN opening on that bezel right? No chance of the paint peeling?

    yes 2-din,
    ive never seen this stuff peel,
    i did it with a good system, sikkens primer, sealer and topcoat...
    The only thing that could damage it would be harsh chemicles...
