    Does your head unit have a reverse angle option and if so does your trim plate on the dash kit get in the way at all? I'm trying to install a Kenwood DNX7140 and I can't get the unit to hit all angles freely (without the trim piece getting in the way). The screen either hits the trim piece and retracts back to original angle or forces the trim piece open and gets stuck in the reverse angle and won't tilt back because it hits the trim piece on the way back. I'm super frustrated. My deck has 6 different angles (-1 and 1 thru 5). I've tried both the scosche and metra and get same problem. Please let me know if you have any advice or know how to fix this problem without sanding.

    Nevermind. I just had to do some refitting of the unit to the dash kit. Now it hits all angles just fine.
