hey guys

had a look around and couldnt find any.....but i was wondering what people had done with regards to the standard head unit in the AU

i know u can get a double din filler thing which converts it to a single DIN, or get a double din head unit....but i was wondering if any1 had any pictures of this gear fitted?

Thanks

yeh i will do thanks for that

i am just struggling to see how any other head unit except the stock ones would look any good....but at the same time am damn sure that people have definitely modifed the dash and put in descent stereos!!!

--also if anyone else has any pics of an updated AU system it would be much appreciated!!! just to get my head around it all!!

thanks for the pic

that looks really good actually

so is it easy to make an AUii, for AUiii, look like that?

i know there is on ebay some plastic thing which covers the double din spot and makes it single din

Yeah, AU1 only had single Din Head Units, so you could probably one from Ford..

I've got a flip-out screen in the top and DVD beneath.
Made a small custom trim to go around them, painted silver.

I've ditched the carkit since then - gone bluetooth.
