    Nice install. BTW, I like the location of the HU. I have the same one and I am happy with it.

    Thanks!

    nitro: Yeah, I guess it is a large attache case? I told my dad I wanted to use plexiglass and how to cut it and he said it was a pain, not as easy as glass cutting which he had showed me a while back. Instead he brought this case from the garage which had his old camera in it. I tore into that instead. It was a really snug fit. I was hoping the PC would be smaller but even with a tight squeeze it's still a pretty huge package.

    hellcat: yeah it came with those wheels when i bought it about a month or so ago. I dont mind it, it might keep people away from looking into my car and stealing my stuff :P

    matrix: Ya thanks. i covered the back of the face with velcro and it sticks nicely to any location around there given the wire is long enough. (unfortunately i used shorter wire than I should have when I was wiring the faceplace out of behind the screen where the actual HU is)
