i wish i had my car with me i would snap a pic....i just got my Avic finally flushed in



i found no way to keep the CD player and although the tape player was there and lit up (as it had to be used with the ML system) i dunno if it was functional.....i mean besides those junky tape adapters who still has tapes? some members on here have never owned a tape
lets see it!

my HU isn't flush (doesn't bug me) I actually like it sticking out a little bit but would love to see what you did!

Did you just move the bracket a little back?

Smile Sweet.

So from what it seems you almost have the exact same vehicle as me! It's just one year older than mine. But my problem is slightly different. My ML amp didn't die one me. I want to run another monoblock amp exclusively for a sub. My question is do I need another amp to run this? http://www.crutchfield.com/p_20610C1...1#overview-tab
