Andres, thank you you, I have/ will lol.

and on that note, here is the work I did this weekend, the good and bad of it.

so, wrapping the stereo panel is a major pain in the ass. definitely not my best work. luckily it was just an intermediate and practice wrap until I get the double din panel for the android head, which will be far easier to do. (less rounded edges and inserts)

I also tried to wrap the climate panel but due to poor adhesive, the texture, and my lack of patience at the end of a long fucking weekend, I was unable to do so. but I did wrap the handle face plate for the passenger side and will do the same when the handle for the driver side comes in today (thank fuck because it just fully broke today on my way to work).

I also installed the factory AUX cable while dealing with the face plate. Then I connected it to my Bluetooth receiver/ FM blaster/ USB charger, which was great until I realized all the sound is coming from the passenger side, so going to have to finagle with that some more.

Finally, I am disappointed to say my trunk LED is not exactly fitting. as far as tall and wide, it fits inside the plastic without issue.... however, I forgot to take into account that the plastic casing cannot fit over the LED panel and latch onto the clasps because the LED panel doesn't allow it to reach them. so for now the LEDs are blinding me since they are stuck with adhesive to the socket. I will probably be changing them back to the old bulbs and ordering one that fits inside the cutout, unlike the dome light.

and here is some pictures of the progress and work.
