      I think I liked the smoked signals from early in the build better than the clears with egg yolk. Maybe if you put clear leds in there that lit up amber it would look better.

      Also what are plans for stereo/ice etc?
      No plans for the stereo unless I blew all my speakers. IMO the stock sound system is more than sufficient. If anything I would add a JL Audio Stealth box for a little more bass. I don't want to detract from my trunk space. I'm also looking into an RNS-510 head unit for nav and movies.

      Yeah I was mainly talking about the head unit. I've got the rcd-510 also and I've seen boxes on ebay and elsewhere that let you run video input to it. There was also a site that had an additional box that ran gps software and output it to the screen and allowed you to use the touch screen to control it still. I was going to look into these before rns-510

      Idk. I think I would rather just get the RNS-510 to be safe. If you do happen to do it and it works let me know

      It seems like the video one is to connect a video source. Not put DVDs in the actual head unit and watch them. Regardless it would just be easier to pay double the price of both of those combined and buy a used RNS off of someone.

      Yeah, you would need like a portable dvd player in the glove box to play dvd's thru the head unit... although the kenwood nav in my wife's outlander plays dvd's and we've literally never used that feature

      I just thought i'd mention it because i'd rather save the cash and do a little extra work than spend more for oem... plus with this you get to use whichever nav software u want, and I've found a lot of aftermarket navs to be better than oem options

      Good luck on your build tho. Like to see where it goes next...

      Did you have to use new wiring harnesses to prevent your headlight sockets from burning up
