wow man that looks really good, thats actually what im doing with my bezel... my bezel gets touched more then ne thing else in the car and im gonna cover it so it doesnt get scratched ne more.. as for clear coating it your going to need to scuff it. to were its dual or has a haz over it.. so the clear coat or w/e u put over it will stick.. also make sure the corners are down nice and secure cuz u dont want them to come up with the clear coat on cuz it will start to peel...

sweet! This is what I should have done. I don't like how my tv sits so low..... I'm guessing yours is a double din unit? How hard was it to move the heater controls? was the wiring long enough?

The head unit Im running is in fact a double din. If u don't move the hvac then everything fits. So when I moved it I had to cut some stuff to make it fit.. Bit yes the wiring is
long enough nd no it's not hard

Well I paid nothing for this deck lid. Nd so I didn't want to put money into it I just wanted to use what I had. I had extra metal, extra duraglass and extra paint so... Im gonna sell it when it's done. Also not everyone likes the Avs. So this for someone that wants it shaved without avs

hahah, cant wait to see the picture... xbrandonx


ok the other day i noticed i needed some air in my front left tire.. today it was low.. so i inspected it and when i lifted the car up i noticed that the same issue superdan had i have.. and i guess mine has been like this long enough for my right tire to wear down a lot.. i make a 30 45 min drive a lot for work so i have to fix this problem asap so the tire stops balding and i also need to figure why im loosing air slowly..

this piece is to protect the filter from water from tire and salt and debree... didnt take me long to make and made it to fit perfect....
