LOL I am so glad someone else is taking a bit of heat with that. LOL I think SharkDiver left out the words "outlet" and "tip". LOL (See my signature)

So was a little busy with the Sky this weekend...to say the least.

First, on Friday I had a new head unit installed. A Kenwood DDX5901HD (or something close to that...). My biggest issue with updating the stock radio was that the adaptors used to install aftermarket radios were rough flat black. I like the piano black of the center stack in our dashes and didn't want to ruin that look. Lucky for me the installer (yea yea, I like doing all my own work but sometimes it's nice to have someone else bust their knuckles) had a painter and painted the bezel to match the rest of the stack. Now if only he would have sanded it a bit more to smooth it out...still, it's real close.



DVD, Bluetooth, and I can control my Android phone from it and use the GPS on it for navigation. Still figuring out all it can do but I like it. The sound is much better and I can now turn it up loud enough to clearly hear the radio with the top down at freeway speeds. Very nice. Another nice perk is that you can change the stock background of the unit. You can't see it very well in the picture above, but I had to customize that too. Here is the raw image itself.



Then on Saturday I decided to have my Dip guy do the hood vents too. Originally I left them chrome to go with the door handles and rear buttress caps (or whatever those chrome "buttons" are on the truck that the buttresses press into) but I found that it seemed like it was too much and didn't go with the rest of the parts painted Anthracite. I think it looks a bit better this way.



And while this wasn't something I did to my Sky, it is something I got for a future project for my Sky that I went and picked up Saturday afternoon after getting the plasti-dip done.



Eventually, no more NA for me...thinking sometime in January.

Thanks MARVIC, it looks really close to factory. If I had a chance to sand it smooth before he painted it you would swear the car came like that. Looks really good.

My son and I are doing movie night at Sonic tonight...going to head over to our local Sonic for dinner, top down, and pop in a movie. LOL
