JUST KIDDIN!!! HAHAH

I made that faceplate out of shane's dad's XL deck to snap over my D3's face when I go into "ghetto" areas lol

On the stock faceplate there are 4 tiny but STRONG magnets on the inside of it and when you put it over the d3... there are magnets on the inside of the radio bezel in the same areas and they just hook up and hold it in place!

And for the haters... the bezel painting is next on my list after putting this in lol... It's driving me nuts as it is right now!

NICE!!! dude...i'm seriously thinking about a D3 now. You bastards make me spend money. lol.

Yo...you seriously need to sand that bezel down and paint it.....make it match your center console.

Thanks for the compliments guys! I love it!...

I'm gonna take apart my center console and repaint it and the rubberized pieces on it... while I'm at it I'm gonna do my radio bezel... It's gonna happen soon, trust me... I hate how ugly it looks!... For the bezel I might go one of 3 colors (because of Cameron lol)... Black (either gloss of flat... maybe even satin), the same as the rest of the dash with the dark charcoal, or silver like the fx4's... Not sure yet...

Awesome, dude.

Not to go way off topic, but do you have family in the Darington Washington area? Just curious cause we have the same last name, lol.

I was skeptical, but I only put the faceplate up with the head unit off so as of right now, nothing is affected... if it is, I've got a 4 year warranty through Best Buy to take care of it lol
