I just hooked up the new Panasonic double din into my Charger and it is awesome. Definitely one of the fastest navi units out there, the navi is built in so theres no external module and no CD to load.

I installed it myself thanks to ping... Will post some pics soon.

Metra kit Install kit 22.00 shipped
CAN BUS harness 90.00 bought at local car audio shop

and 3 beers...(school night)

Eclipse AVN5510 890.00

Finally got my digital camera which I was supposed to receive 2 weeks ago and took some pics today. After a busy summer I decided to give my car some love again and I finally got around to putting on the chin spoiler which I painted myself to match the car. I also attached a rear view camera to the LCD, enjoy. 22"s on the way...

continued...

Chin Spoiler $70
Paint/Supplies $40
Rear View Camera $33
Debadging $0

I am taking the bracket off of the camera and attaching to the top of the license plate, they are too big. Should come clear.

I was reluctant to spend $150+ plus on a super clear camera, the bottom line is I really only care for it in reverse, so I bought a cheap one off of ebay after reading some guys feedback and everyone that bought seemed to happy with it. It has an awesome picture for $37 with shipping and honestly its night picture might be better than day picture. Only downside is shadowy areas like alleys because it is so low, but thats only in the daytime, night looks fine wherever. It is not wireless, red for power, black for ground, and the RCA cable runs directly to any head unit compatible with NTSC format which is usually the standard.

The CAN BUS harness is to plug all the wires from the head unit to the stock plug, in the charger. You connect all the wires to the harness and simply plug it together and your done.

Thanks, reason I asked is because I have one sitting here that I want to do myself but was a little afraid with all the wires and such got a quote for 100 bucks but I know its a 20 min job. So where did you run the wires behind your license plate? Any pics of that?

I will try and get you a close up, but I just used the existing hole and ran the wire through (where license plate bulb is). But instead of running it right or left I went down in order to be able to reach it from behind.
