  1. Sure MAC here are the other videos to give you a better idea. Wrapping: Clear Coating: Polishing: Also the step by step tutorial is at howtowoodgrain.com
  2. Thanks. What I had to do was take a single din stereo kit for the 02-05 Deville and modify it to fit a double din. The brackets on the single din kit were an exact fit. What I did have to do was fabricate what held the stereo to the finished bracket. I used a firm but flexable metal and screwed it to the kit in the shape of a box. Not bad for a first attempt, but right now I'm designing several others for the Deville but with an easier attachment. I'll let you know how I make out. If you have any other questions let me know. Definately let me know how that works out. I'm trying to figure out how I'm gonna make mine fit when I get it. Been looking at A Kenwood Excelon but wasn't sure how I was gonna get it to fit. Might have to hire you to make me a bracket!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep me informed. Sure Thing. I'll let you know when Im done.

  4. My boss' boss bought my '98 Eldorado for his college son. Not surprisingly, the student's first order of business was to have the OEM radio replaced (by a professional installer). Despite assurances to the contrary, there were no end of difficulties; mostly having to do with the security system. Eventually, after several weeks, the original radio was mounted in the trunk to alleviate these conflicts. Regards, Warren P.S. I'd really like to see a radio with a USB port on it. Does such a unit exist? I'm perfectly comfortable using a cassette adapter to listen to my MP3 podcasts and music, but it's a sloppy solution. Also, truth be told, I wouldn't give up the Bose. Regards, Warren Actually the Clarion Double Din I installed blew my mind. The player does have a USB for an Ipod or flash drive of MP3s, it has the ability to play MP3 DVD's (which most players do not), and it has built in blutooth abilities. I expected it to play CD MP3 Discs but The DVD MP3 option is great. I have yet to try using a dual layer disc but if that works I'll be able to store over 1200 songs, maybe more, depending on the sound quality.
  5. Oh yeah, I'm aware that they make aftermarket kits but unfortunatly my radio doesn't have them. I did have to use two others though, one was so I didn't have to cut any wires and keep the door chimes and the other was so I could have the DVD player running while the car is in motion. The biggest isssue was finding a place to mount all the aftermarket wiring kits. Good luck if you try designing your own wood trim, and if you have time, photograph and I will stick it up on my Web site.
  6. Actually the volume controls don't work anymore but the climate still works. The Clarion just didn't come with that function. To me it's a small trade off compared to the factory radio. I appreciate your compliment.
  7. I just installed a new Double Din Radio in my Caddy. I was going to start by spray painting it the factory interior grey but I didn't want it to look generic. So I Wood Grained it! Please let me know your comments and visit my online tutorial so maybe you can do this yourself. Caddy Wood Grain Tutorial Just visit the tutorials section. Please let me know what you think.
