I figured. I really like the way that looks, but it's not worth the trip right now.

How did you secure the dash kit, does it just clip in?

It's a modified face from the factory HU. It has 2 clips on the sides.

Ahh I see. I will probably just go with the Janus double din kit. I wonder if the lower half of the Janus kit would work with that trim piece for the climate control.

yeah you can, it has nothing to do with the factory I-drive system. if i decide not to do the retrofit you can buy my navi dash and do what this guy did http://www.ebay.com/itm/331065716683...84.m1555.l2649

any way i can see this in person? i have someone who is going to do this project for me i want to see how it all works with the double din radio and the screen up top. i found a broken navi screen for 30 bucks all i need is the housing, got lucky there. i just need the bottom bracket and the double din radio.

because the screen itself isnt going to be used its going to be replaced with a 7 inch to work off the double din at the bottom. see it here?

Gotcha. Couldn't tell from what you originally stated. Should work just fine.

i got the bracket for the climate control and im searching for a good double din, nothing too expensive i was thinking an android or something with wifi and apps and navi of course. by the way what types of things can be displayed on the top screen? do you need to use a remote to turn on the top one or does it turn on when the bottom is on? sorry with the questions i just need info so i can get this done soon. thanks for the inspiration. i was about to sell my dash until i saw what you did.

ive been researching since i plan on doing this after i mount my wheels.

most double din units now a days can have a dual display...like navi on the unit and the other screen u can play a movie or something. im sure every unit varies but i essentially want to be able to have navi on one screen and be able to control my music/movie on the other.

still on the wall if i want the navi in the dash or the double din. im also going to go with one of those dynavin type deal (but a diff model) simply because it looks more OEM.

Sorry. I no longer have a double din. I sold it and I am using a single din temporarily until I do my next project.

10" drivers in kickpanels enclosures? That's a bit insane. You already have a trunk sub, why do you need more sub bass coming from the front? I can see wanting more midrange in kickpanels, that is basically what I have. Great job on the double din dash conversion.

Are you aware how old this thread is? Lol. I didn't put the 10's in my kicks. I went with the Jehnert panels instead and have 8 - 6 1/2" mid bass drivers (4 per side)

Does your door scrape the pavement when you open it?
