I like how the Nexus looks, both its UI and into the console itself.

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time,
but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment...

I bought a Metra Double DIN kit and made plastic strips that pass behind the tablet. I moddled it into the Metra kit. It's pretty solid enought, but I need to adjust the tablet a little (The right side is a little bit lower than the left one).

**I'll try to take pics from behind when i'll adjust it so you can understand easier

Behind that, there's a 12V-5V transformer, ignition-switched by a relay, powering a USB HUB and the tablet.
There's a Joycon EXR for steering wheel control (I still work on that, because the nexus 7 don't want to recognize it), a Pyle PLMRMP3A 4-Channel marine amp (Small enought to be in the dash, so I didn't have to pass speaker cable anywhere), there's a Behringer UCA222 DAC also.

UI is an idea of a mp3car user (rxritalin), who gives his photoshop file to anyone wanting to use it ( see the post ).

If you have any questions about it, don't hesitate!

Install, exterior and interior, looks good. I don't usually like the chrome look, but the bull bar looks good with your chrome accents. The Nexus looks really good too! Would love to see what "cleaner" looks like!

What is the new horn for? Is yours broken or are you looking for a different sound?

Just a personal opinion: don't put fogs on the bull bar. Only reason is because you have a very clean look and I think it might clutter it up a little. But hey!, prove me wrong!

Also, Rise Against... good call!
