Talking Double Din Face

So after getting my other double din stolen due to the classic screw driver in the drivers side door lock I decided to change some things up this time to help prevent the truck from getting broken into again.

First I changed the door handle to a rear one without the lock. Also I made my own "jimmi jammers" out of some scrap metal I had around my garage, but I have not perfected those yet.

Then I installed a triple train horn on my truck and am going to hook it up to my viper alarm.

Then I just finalized my "fake face" for my Alpine INA-900BT. Check it out below and let me know what you think.
"stock radio "


surprise


Alpine


rear view (had to do a lot of shaving with my dremel tool, then I hot glued everything to make it look whole.

This head unit ran me $799 which is pretty good, because they list most places for $1000

yea if it fits it will be nice.

My friend basically blew up his truck and was parting it out so I grabbed the radio from him and made mine. So I still have my original stock 6 disc if I need it.

It takes alot of shaving to get it to fit right but its worth it. It makes me sleep better at night thats for sure, for whatever thats worth.
