    Dressing-up install kits

    Those Metra kits are a quick way to make a head unit fit, but the plastic is never a good match and sometimes there's gaps. Has anybody covered a kit in suede or velvet? I'd like to see

    I would think it would be pretty difficult to actually wrap a dash kit in some sort of material just because if the thickness of the suede or velvet. The only way i could see it working would be if you used suede flock. You could always make your own kit/mounting bracket to give it a custom/unique look.

    you can easily wrap a dash kit. just make sure you have a sharp blade. and yeah, sometimes you have to modify them. i had to shave off a small amount because my HU would rub on the sides.

    Re: Dressing-up install kits

    Heh, in my old car I had a pocket that I got from a Prelude, and I used a piece of black plastic to mount the EQ in the center of it. I remember cutting out the plastic by hand with a small jigsaw blade. I was wearing a lot of bandaids for a week or so
