I live in an area that's known for the tweekers. And when they're tweek'n, they'll steal anything that isn't tied down, and even some things that are. Plus, I just wanted to see if I could do it. You might be thinking "just remove the face". Yeah, no, thats not enough in my book.
I wanted a stereo with bluetooth, and already had a unit with a missing face. I acquired a face off ebay to save a few bucks. Also I was already familiar with how this stereo is setup. One of the keys to this mod was steering wheel controls so I don't necessarily have to take off the fake face all the time. A pain to install but worth it. Actually what I like most is I can see the aftermarket screen through the stock screen. I had to mod the brackets a bit, but wasn't too hard. If I get enough interests, I'll show you the brackets. Enjoy.
