What kinda dash kit is that?? That doesn't look like a scosche and did you have to color match paint it? Also it seems like the radio is facing up.

I actually picked it up at circuit city, it was already silver. I had to do some triming on it so the face wouldnt rub.

It looks like the Metra kit. They angle the HU up a little bit more than the Scosche kit.
Now when you say angle, i got a question. I had hell on earth fitting that damn thing in there. I used the factory stero bracket and just put them on the new HU. Is there a way to angle it more down versus the way it is? I thought about modifying the brackets so it would tilt a lil more down, but im not sure if you guys know a better way

Looks good! It'd look even better with a non scooped hood, and black mirrors, you know the whole black on white theme...:D:D I know this guy that'd trade you.:D:D Too bad they don't ship as easy as a HU.;)

Honestly, the easiest and cleanest way to do it would be to get the silver Scosche kit online. The fit is much better, the finish is much closer to stock, easy to install, and it won't cost you much.

By the way, it's a real PITA to get that double din HU in no matter what kit you use. I've done it three times, and it was a lot easier the third time, but still not something I'd look forward to doing.
