Now I'm working on my custom fibreglass sub box and amp rack for the trunk. I'll post it all up once everything is 100% done

    once again, awesome job.

    Thanks man......believe me, my hand was VERY shaky and it took me a while thinking about it, but the way I wanted to mount the screen, the bracket was in the way and would not let me put the bezel back on....hope yours turns out great!!

    Well done! Super clean. The CPU box with fans looks awesome, especially they way it's so nicely fit in there. Nice install.

    Yeh, that's wild. =) I would't have had the guts to do that either.

    The "worst" I did, was drill a hole in one of the plastic colums to accomodate the back end of a switch bwtween the rear defroster and traction control switches. I fit an amp for the tweeters in the space underneath that metal headunit brace, but am afraid if I have to bend it up one or two more times to access the wires, the back end of the brace will snap off.

    Thanks guys! Believe me, it wasn't easy to take the dremel to the car, I think most of it was rage. I had been working on the install all weekend and that was the last thing to install. When I tried to put the bezel on and it didn't go all the way in....oh I was ****ED !! So after thinking about it for a while the little devil on my shoulder kicked the angel's *** and put the dremel in my hand....the rest is history

    That damn devil.......I love him so much !!!!!
