Default Finally a headunit from this decade!

removed my 80s Sony tape player for an Eclipse HU made in 1987, however it got damaged in shipping and I had no volume up button. Finally installed a new one....I think it looks pretty spiffy, you can see how I cut the outer shroud thing for a nice clean look.

I need to do the same thing so bad. Mine is completely defunct. I can use ipod via the radio (cd player is completely dead, and the tape player has someones Kansas' greatest hits stuck in it), but I can't see what station i'm on, so I have to keep flipping through the radio stations till I can hear something.

I forgot to buy the cable before I installed it, but this HU will control my ipod

How do you keep your interior so clean? Mine has dust everywhere, especially around the shift boot.

I think we need a thread to pimp your cars audio setup.
