    Back for repair...

    FYI, I had to send my second-gen MDT-X7000 (described in the worklog above) back to Xenarc for repair. One day, it stopped moving during extension, and never recovered (I'd been able to clear this...

    Installing the Xenarc *and* the Stock Radio

    Now to the fun part.

    The stock bracket that connects to the OEM radio includes a bracket to mount a pocket; you can see it in the "finished" photos. That bracket, amazingly, turns out to be the...

    Wiring the console (2)

    Wiring the console (1)

    This was the worst part. My original plan for this install was to use a Xenarc 700IDT panel and to integrate it into the console using a custom bezel. However, the aspect ratio was wrong for the...
