Made a cover for my navigation system so It won't get stolen. I still need to do a little bit more work on it. I'm going to use velcro on the sides to stick it over my Dnx7100.

I'd like to see this finished! I had an idea like this back in the day. Remember when those one Kenwoods 1st came out? The one's that automatically flipped 180 to make it "look like" the radio was gone? I always thought that thieves would get hip to the sight of a smooth panel where your radio is supposed to be and know it was the Kenwood and steal it anyway.

the one I have in my eclipse when it is on is touch screen with a nob that comes out for the volume, and when it turns off the nob recesses and it turns solid black, its pretty neat

Just got an idea I might try suction cups on the screen.

I'm not really going to use it that much. Just when ever I go to portland.

That's actually a similar idea to what I had. Only, instead of putting the shirt over it, just leave the stock face on there. :)

The shirt is on there to protect the screen.

Haha. Yea, my Bro has been rocking that one for years! It's still going strong. He loves it!
yeah I have had it for 5 or 6 years.

and I think your faceplate thing is pretty neat, I thought about trying something, but never actually went though with anything
