I am redoing the thread cause now I have camera shots and looks so much better. So, I installed the lower dash kit for my tv. It's a 7inch LCD. JVC 3" LCD in the upper metra dash kit, and 7in PowerAcoustics LCD screen in the lower. Coin tray and ac adaptor is still useable. During the day, the tv is normal, at night.. can be a little bright, but thats what you get with a 7in and the screen brightness is auto-adjust. It did suck removing the OEM radio, but I have a LX trim, so no big difference for me.

LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU GUYS THINK.

Also, here is the link to see my progression with the car (+ mesh grille) and full mod list can be found in the signature.

yup. protective cover is still on the screen. for "protection" purposes. When the tv is on, the bubbles aren't noticable.

What did you use for the lower kit? It looks good! I still am not crazy about the upper kit, but to each his own.

It was the Metra lower dash kit. It was a single-din at first then I did some custom work to turn it into a double-din. I used bondo to patch the sides and make a rear stand to hold the tv. Sanding and spray paint to match the color.

the top is the HU and the lower is just a LCD screen. The DVD player is behind the headunit, the navigation was on the headunit one model up and I didn't get it. I use the iPhone application or Garmin for navigation if I "seriously" need it. The TV Tuner is mounted under the passenger seat not yet wired.

i did a LCD on the lower instead of a double din unit, it required more work cause it was made custom from a single din metra to a custom double din mount.

if you want to do a double din, get the OEM Honda audio attachment kit from the dealer. if you want to do a flip out, I have a metra dash kit for sale.
