    The double din screen wasn't exactly double din I had to do some cutting but I really did not want to modify the dash because it would not look as clean as if I were to keep the dash untouched. I'm not happy about the cuts so I can either sand it down and paint over, or wrap it in 3M carbon fiber vinyl. I think I will go with the latter option


    Also, the camera is in. It just needs to be wired now. The touch screen has an auto rear view switching line. It will be connected to the reverse lights. Once the reverse lights come on (meaning i'll be in reverse gear), the line will sense the signal and switch to the 2nd input, which will be the reverse camera.

    I will say, make sure you spray some primer or something to prevent rust. Otherwise mother nature will eat that metal right up. I drilled holes in similar metal for my reverse system and it started to rust bad. I used that spray stuff that turns rust into primer and so far that has worked.

    Other then that, nice install! I'm not a fan of the Versa, but the way you have yours looks good.

    I just hope you don't live in Surrey. If you do, I hope you keep it in a well-hidden area. My car got broken into SIX times in two years and the system wasn't nearly as high-profile as that one. Though your pic looks more like Vancouver to me, maybe Kerrisdale or something.
    Anyway, it looks really nicely done. I like how integrated it looks.

    From the video of your dashcommand, it looks like only a few gauges work? Is it a work in progress, or is that all that's functional on the GTR skin?

    Ironic side note, my friend had his window smashed by someone and the only thing they stole was a CD that had a hole drilled through it so it could hang from the rearview mirror. Ironic part is it's the CD titled in your first pic.

    Thanks for the warning...and don't worry, I don't live in the ghetto. And my car is well protected

    Dash command is still a work in progress. There is so much to do, I've barely spent any time working on the computer side of things.
