        Did you fabricate the head unit enclosure? Does the entire unit fit back there or is that just the front panel with the actual united elsewhere?

            the whole unit is there. I actually just bought a stock kit from subaru for a gauge pod and installed my deck into it instead of gauges

                        Really nice install. I like the custom case as well, you just have to clean up the wiring a little bit, all those wires would drive me crazy.

                        Do you have any day time pics of the screen?
