    I didnt mean to leave those of you who have been following this project, hanging. I had to take an unwanted break, due to being under the weather, but I'm ready to proceed. I'll try to have an update for you guys soon.

    It's been a little while since we have seen any updates on this.

    How is it coming along?

    (bowing) Props to you, that's as close to oem as one could get!!! You should sell these or your services...there are many who don't have the NAV who would snatch this right up!

    I agree! I have to hand it to you. That looks great! If you can manage to build more I would sell it also.

    You could possibly have a company mold that and reproduce it from plastic aluminum or carbon fiber, without having to relay fireberglass every time.

    Looks great but have you ever thought about taking an aftermarket motorized flip-out screen and retrofit it into our pop-up screen area, and then take the aftermarket body and install it hidden somewhere like in the glove box?

    I like the idea and what you've done so far. I look forward to seeing all the pics once you finish it all.

    I was actually thinking about this today. It has been a long time since I've shopped head units, so I have no idea if there is one already set up for this or not. Definitely worth a a little digging.

    I've been wondering if anyone else has attempted or achieved this Retro fit yet? If so would you guys mind posting some of your own pics. I would be interested in seeing others results
