Metra Double Din up and running w/ pix

Guys, I love how this kit looks. My installed stated there is a lot of work that is involved that is not inside the Metra kit. I will do the best that I can to post what I have learned.

If you live in Florida let me know and I will put you in touch with my installer..

Some notes from the installer:
He needs an antenna adaptor for the car as well as a small speaker for the onstar in the car. Without it no onstar.

Hertz Tweets are installed in OEM location with a tilt
Hertz 6.5s are installed in the doors w/ a custom wood spacer
Hertz Pair of 12s and box will be getting built on Monday!!
Tunning should happen Tues
Picking the car up weds if all works out..

Wow looks great, I wanted to do that but I don't think I am going to go with that bracket though. Very clean look though man. (I also love the blue double stitching)

Lucky man, I envy you haha. But when I trade in my LT for an SS, or the z/28, if its out by October,2011 I am for sure going to be getting the double stitch. My father has double stitch leather in 2009 cts-v, and I absolutely love it.

We are the only one selling it currently but if/when you move that direction let me know...

You can see my garage if you wanted to see more if you have not.

Please give us some feedback on the AVIC unit, I had a first generation 910BT and it was frustrating to use because of the software glitches (even with the firmware updates). I would love to hear that the new ones are working as designed with an efficient and user-friendly interface...

I got the dash kit for free, because I have had a lot of problems with my sound system,through this audio store, and they wanted to be generous. And they gave a $100 bucks of a new pioneer head unit.

looks cool. I would like to see a single DIN using the Metra Kit because my head unit is a single DIN and I am not trading one of the best audiophile heads for a new double din.

Aside from the speaker what else was difficult in the install of the Metra kit? Where did you mount the speaker for Onstar?

Do what makes you happy...

There appears to be more to the install than what is in the manual. I am sure a good shop can figure it out.

I have no idea where the speaker is or anything else since he ran in to this later in the day Friday. I will tell more info once I find out.

It would be interesting to see this kit with the top half painted black to mimic the factory appearance a bit more. Can anyone photoshop one of these pics to show it with black from those contours at the middle to the top?
