    Awesome job so far. I've been lurking on this thread and am astonished at what you've accomplished so far! I have the premium nav and yet am somewhat jealous already Keep up the good work!

    Helluva project! Can't wait to see many pics of the finished project. I'm sure many people are following your progress...esspecially CTS owners with the basic stereo.

    I agree with jeffc83. Congratulations, I really hope this works out for you. It is looking amazing so far. Way to show everyone who says it couldn't be done.

    Re: 2011 CTS Double din retro fit

    Thanks Jeffc84, Pluto3, and Jagillac. I have a few days worth of body work ahead of me, than I'm hoping to get her into a shop this weekend to get everything wired up. I've installed basic setups and ran amps in my cars before, but Im not really sure on how to install the aftermarket HU with out compromising the A/C traction control and hazards. Has anyone ever ran two headunits in the same car?

    I can't wait to see the finished product. You should definitely think about marketing such a set up. There are many CTS owners including myself that would jump at the opportunity to be able to do this to their car. Great work so far!!!

    I'm ok with a mig welder, I took auto body courses from 08-10 that got me involved with welding, than I decided to take a semester of welding and metal fab in 2011. my skills are pretty basic

    Hopefully you won't have problems getting it all wired up.
