what was i thinking?

installed a cheap aftermarket stereo/dvd. sounds so much better than stock. but i thought i would get a little creative with the mounting kit. i thought red would look great with my matching hood. well, it looked better in my mind.

see for yourself. comes off tomorrow!

i think i got a little rice in me. never did that stuff when i was younger and i don't want to rice up my other car. so i thought it was worth a shot. yes, i bet it would not look as bad if the interior was the dark gray.

it's not actually painted, it is a vinyl decal. so hopefully i can just remove it without the leaving a sticky residue. i may even return the deck and get a double din deck. screen is so small, it is almost useless. oh well, for $180 you can't ask for too much.

i got mine from ebay. it has a single/double capability. thats is why i got this one, just in case i wanted a double. it is black, not silver like the oem. scorches has a good looking one that is pretty close to stock.

$180? It looks like it is playing a DVD. What brand is it? What else does it do?

yes, it is a dvd player. tv tuner (need good ant). mp3, usb, sd card, back up camera viewer, aux input. dupont brand. i'm sure that is just a generic name used by some foreign importer and NOT the famous dupont.

it is not bad, but only a 4 inch screen and it could be a bit brighter if i use this, i would need a rear screen for my boys. but if i get a 7 inch double din, i bet i don't have to fiddle with more screens.

Somethin' about it is kinda cool...I appreciate the idea. Now a red taco with black interior...?! maybe.
Good luck with that tomorrow-and remember-we've all done something similiar at some point in our lives!
