Finally got it in....

I had to do a little modification to the dash, and decided to fabricate a better fitting trim frame than what came with it from Alpine, but now it's in and working beautifully. What do you guys think?

Oh, and thanks EW!

Abra Cadabra!

Had some leftover plastic, so I decided to make a cover for it. I used some rubber foam weather stripping on the outer sides on the back of the cover itself. That slides into the gaps on the sides just enough to hold it in place. My windows are too dark to see in anyway, but it's more for slobber protection when I leave my dogs in the truck while I run into a store or something.

I'm felling pretty crafty right now. lol

Looks good Jared. Congrats on the new addition to your system. How are you liking it so far?

Make a fake face plate out of the factory radio's face, it's easy and works.

I dig it a lot. I'm still waiting for my processor to come in (H701), so for now, without crossovers, I am having to keep the audio low. When that comes in, and I get my center channel up and running, I'm sure I'll have a permagrin.

I've heard of doing that, but I don't want to mess with it. Security isn't an issue, with my windows being so dark. But my dogs slobber all over my truck when I take them anywhere.

Jared, whenever you get a chance I'd like to check out your screen setup up close. I like the idea of the cover plate and want to do something similar with mine.

Cool man. I'm usually home in the evenings no later than 7:30. Weekends too. You are welcome to swing by any time, or we could meet at Autosound on a Saturday. I'm always up there for something. Heck, if you don't already have plans for the Mavs game(s), you are more than welcome to watch at my place. 65" of HD goodness with a kickass surround sound setup, comfortable seating, and a cold fridge for brews or whatever. If not, I'll try to make the next Southside GTG.

I'll be at the game Thursday but appreciate the offer. Probably having a Southside GTG later in the month so maybe than. Otherwise we can see about meeting at EW's on a Saturday since I'm to busy with work during the week.

Damn, that's greatness. A dude at my work is selling a pair of seats on the first row right behind the Heat. $4500 each!

Not yet. Actually, I don't think any of the Alpines have it built into the head unit. It can be added with a permanent hardwire piece for a gazillion dollars. Better yet, you can purchase a Blackbird (Alpine's portable navigation device), and a docking station that connects to this unit, and all of the controls and visual from the portable unit will show up on the screen in the dash. That's my plan. I'll probably put the docking station in the glove box or something so you would never even know it's a separate piece, but then I can take it with me to another vehicle, or whatever.

I'm planning on doing the same thing as well, going with the Blackbird. Probably be a while before I can afford one though

my wife has the eclipse nav, and she loves it...she never has a problem getting anywhere! i've never seen the alpine nav, but if it's anything like the eclipse, you'll love it. the eclipse is the exact same one as the lexus...fujitsu ten.
