Where to start lol:
Let's preface this with, yes, I know the 2 main issues. The factory amp turn on (solved with a PAC TATO adapter) and the circuit board for the HVAC is in the changer (solved by removing it and relocating it by Rafa of Soundman Car Audio).
For those who don't know who SoundMan is. It was a car audio shop out in California that has a web series which is syndicated on the web network Revision3. They specialize in iPad dash kits. One of their installers (and hilarious characters on the web show I might add) Rafa, has agreed to take on this job.
At the time of writing this post, the dash is about 50% complete. Below will be some YouTube links as it was featured on 2 episodes of the web series "Amplified". Also, here are some pics of the progress so far.
I just sent Rafa the ashtray assembly to relocate the Airbag lights and hazard buttons into, and I also sent the silver trim pieces so that he can guarantee a flush fit.
As far as the head unit, it's the Sony MEX-GS600BT app remote controlled radio. It's going to be mounted behind the iPad.
Enjoy and wish me luck lol
