Background- I have a 2005 WRX Wagon that recently got an STI front and rear face lift that I have had for 5 years. Its getting a 6spd swap, vf48 turbo, flex fuel tune from Carberry, and a LOT of other modifications. My wife has a 2010 Forester XT Limited so we are basically a Subaru family now.
I have been looking into this lately as I just picked up a 2006 OBXT limited. Unfortunately, this means I am plagued with having dual zone HVAC and am not able to upgrade unless I install a JDM set up for roughly $400 and have it shipped from Japan.
After looking into a lot of different things, I had a question. Why can't I just do this...
Take one of THESE
Cut it up a bit, and cut just above the dual HVAC controls, paint them, and reassemble with a double din unit installed?
Has anyone tried this? If so, pictures? If not, why?
Thanks for your time everyone!
