Very cool - I like the car gauges.

Off topic, but what is up with the "spider webbing" on the silver bezels around the radio and where the HVAC vents are?

I'm assuming that you had painted these yourself? Or was it dip? Might be useful info for others (so that they don't run into the same issue). Also curious how long it lasted before it did this.

It is Plasti Dip, and it did the web effect because I spray to much on and bubbled up as you see in the picture. I was going redo it but I like it has well as my gf, might add little color next year to get it to "pop", started with radio bezel and liked the design so I attempted for the top dash bezel and came out alright. Its different. Been on debate of redoing the dash bezel but if I do it will be next year in spring.

Last weekend I wired up my Reverse Camera as well as built a Custom Bracket for camera and Plate Lights. Took little time, but turned out great and looks factory! Not very noticeable ether.

May make another bracket to Improve one I have but we will see what I decide to do.

Update!

Soon be Installing 180 Thermostat!
Re-tune Coming Soon!

Rear view Camera bracket working great, Not noticeable at all! LED lights built into it are great! May be installing a light or two for extra lighting for backing up.

New Radio Is great! Love the Apple Car Play, Gauges, Car Info, Etc. Still learning how to use Radio, So many options!

Getting Multiple compliments on my exhaust! again it is a Muffler delete replaced with straight pipe, Still waiting to cut resonator out, replace with Glass pack.

Next thing on the list is finding new shoes for Panda! Have set in mind just need to find a set for a decent price!

Nice camera mount! Looks factory.
Now what model JVC radio is that, that is cool as heck that it displays your car's information.

That's what I was going for, Factory Look! Radio Is JVC KW-V820BT. Top Modal out of the 3 They made

1. JVC KW-V320 (Personally Not worth the Money)
2. JVC KW-V620 (Good Price and Good Unit)
3, JVC KW-V820 (Top Model, Bit Pricey, But well worth the money!)

I am also led to believe that weather tech has no drill mud flaps too.
Might be worth a closer look
