Default My DIY DVD/NAV Headunit install! In progress with pictures

Well I started installing the headunit myself I cant wait.

First off this is how my current dash looks like...



Then I poped out the shifter pannel just prying out the plastic clips that hold it together and unplugged the socket.



Then took out the top pannel where it covers the dash!



Stock Stereo removed!!



And this is how it looks right now with everything removed Ill be drilling the stock brackets so the unit will fit more flush and so my radio door can close.
