alpine kit photoshop ideas

I'm about to get the alpine dash kit and want to have it painted. Any ideas, photoshop help, general comments will be appreciated. Of course, I want to keep the yellow and black theme going. I have seen a few painted but the lines on this kit are a bit tricky. Thanks.

No problem, my friend, who also happens to be on this forum and who has a pretty extensive thread on this system is doing me a huge favor and installing it for me. I can't wait. I want to have the kit painted first but so far it looks like I'm on my own as far as ideas are concerned. Hopefully some members have some great ideas to help with my painting scheme.

wait, thats the alpine kit? I thought it was a scosche looking at it. thats cool, ive heard good things about alpine, not so good about scosche

When you get it hooked up let me know if the air/heat portion blinks...see the link below, notice how the bottom display is blinking? that would drive me crazy...other than that im leaning towards this baby...

That's the way the video camera picked up the led screen. It doesn't flicker in person.

Still no painting schemes for me to consider? With all of this forum talent there isn't anyone who has an opinion?

I would do the gloss black on the inside of the bezel surrounding the radio and yellow on the rest if you are trying to match that console

How cool someone else posted my review. The GPS is built into the Alpine dvd player. You can get them from crutchfield.com or any Alpine dealer.

Has anyone used this kit w/o using a Alpine HU, like Pioneer, Kenwood, etc? Any issues? I have a top of the line Pioneer, but my Metra is slowly going out. May have to swap kits soon.

Personally, I would go with the first one I posted. It flows better with your console.

Agreed. Thanks. You really do great work. I sent Lupe a message so he sees what his next project will look like.
