    List of brands for successfully relocated faceplates.

    I'd like to get a list going of brands that have successfully relocated the faceplate from the headunit of their stereo.

    I know some brands don't take to this faceplate seperation as well as others so I'd love to see who has got what to work well.

    Reason is my stereo finally bit the dust so I need to get a new one to pump the sweet sounds of my CarPuter through.

    Mine was a Pioneer DEH-P930

    I am interested too. What would yo do with the HU though? I mean, it will have the slot for the CD, so you can't just hide it behind the dash.

    No one still uses the CD portion of the HU anymore, it's merely used to have access to broadcast radio and to port the sound from the CarPC -> HU -> Car Speakers.

    Please try to keep this thread to brands and successful or not successful.

    Ive heard some rumors about Alpines and that is what I wanted to go to so I wanted to check. And I thought I mine as well get a list of all fo them if the Alpines in fact wont work I should get a list of the ones that do.... I would think they all could, but you never know.

    I've done alpines..... don't remember model #'s off hand though... basically I would look at the connections & see if there is enough room to solder.... some have many pins that are close togeather..... they can still be done, but may be a little more difficult... depends on your soldering ability but with a good small electronic soldering iron I would think just about any head can be done.....

    the EASIER ones will have less pins & larger more seperated... that's really the difference......

    My OEM Pug Clarion is not faceoff and can be done easy as when you take it apart the front panel is connected to the rest of the stereo by a face-off style connector.

    That is the point, I have heard that this statement is not true. So I wanted a list of people that have successfully done it.

    Maybe all decks are but I have heard otherwise in the past is all.
