So how will you access the car's BC functions (like setting the clock etc.) once you fit this? Just curious...

Good point, and I have absolutely no idea. But realistically I havenít seen the time, or the radio station, or anything legible on the OEM receiver head for a decade or more. Iím assuming the new receiver has a clock function too.

Nine missing left front door panel rivets were replaced. I didn't realize it had so many missing. Ordered two packs of 12. One is almost gone! Now, on to the fuse for rear door locks and hatch. I was about go begin but a thunder storm cell moved over my house. F20 and F24 are good. So it's a hunt now.

Sounds like you have the factory Nav? Unless you actually need the cash, don't throw it away, or maybe buy a used MID unit you can plug in, should you need it one day. There are a couple of functions that require a working Nav system or MID - like unlocking the anti-theft code lockout, should it become enabled by a flat battery situation etc. (which has been known to occur).

No nav nor DSP, which I think makes aftermarket upgrades to the stereo less complicated.

Correct - much easier.

So yeah, you might want to keep the MID unit around - just in case (even though it sounds like it has a lot of dead pixels...).

You should be able to install the Kenwood without hacking up the factory loom. There are plenty of adapters for this sort of mod.

Installed Heat Shield window screens. With 5% rear tint, and shades out, the entire inside is dark. Nice on a hot Texas day when no shade is available.

Agreed!

Something oddly familiar about your car too... can't quite place it.
