Alex is correct, the upper support has a sharp lip on it that can and will rub against the bigger radiator, fix is fold the lip out the way and or take some rubber or silicon vacuum tubing and run a slit in it and then place that over the lip.

I'll try and get a pic of what I'm talking about later after I'm off work

Arrived in mail today and already have the kit ready for install. Should clean up the interior a bit and give it a more stock look.

I've been eyeing that same head unit. You should let me tinker with it when it's all installed, Brian.

ive got a set from 3yrs ago still running in my ladys CRV. Perfect fitment as long as stay within recommended sizing (them make oversized layouts too). Customer service, pricing, and shipping to Alaska was simple, easy, and fast. So yes, i would consider them High Quality

Not so much. I just wish it threaded deeper and wasn't so rickety. Might have Element Automotive shave some of the ebrake's thread down so the button sits in further.

Thanks again, buddy!

Sure thing. Definitely took me forever to finally decide on a unit I liked. I literally spent hundreds of hours reviewing information and consumer reviews on all the flagship models. Regretfully as I'd begin to find one I liked, it was a 6.1 size and I wanted a 7. Then I'd be disappointed with that similar manufactures 7 model lol. Hopefully this proves to be a solid unit.

I do hope Sirius starts setting up transponders and expanding into the Alaska market. The FCC recently gave them the go-ahead for Alaska and Hawaii. I know that they jumped on Hawaii but not sure what their plans are for here. I'm so tired of standard radio, advertisements and the same replayed songs.

You're just getting all kinds of stuff. We'll have to have an install day once you get back.

Oh damn! The pivot isn't supposed to look like that! Lots of rust there, was the throwout bearing frozen? What do you conclude that caused it?

No rust or not much. It has been sitting for 3 months. Most of that dust is from the disc not pulling away from the flywheel due to the fork being broke. New fork, throw out bearing and disc is going in tomorrow.
