    Removing clock on top of dash

    It looks like the clock on top of the dash sits in a panel that can pop out. If tried prying on it in various places but haven't gotten it out. I was wondering if anyone has done this.

    Also, if anyone's done this and mounted their head unit in this location, how is that done?

    Thanks

    its easy!!! you need to pry from a corner first closest to the windshield one corner at a time, then once you sepparate the end closest from the windshield, pull up gently and slide the clock assy towards the windshield cause the whole assy slides out, as for putting the radio there, ask club member (ej20fan) if he sells the new assy to put the radio there, he runs a local audio shop and has a wealth of knowledge on parts for our cars and how to run cool audio and all.
    any other questions let me know how i can help !!

    Thanks Ben,

    Here's a cool pic from the HIN WRX from Kaminari we built about a year ago.

    Yes I saw that picture and was very impressed; it looks very clean, whch is what I'm all about.

    You seem creative, so would you have any idea on how I can make the area where my equalizer is mounted look nice? It's measured at 1/2 DIN but it doesn't fill up the opening under the head unit. Right now the only idea I can think of is putting the equalizer in the box that used to be underneath the head unit, velcroing it down inside of it or something and then drilling a small hole somewhere in the box for wires to go through.

    Below are some pics.

    Another thought I had was plexi-glassing behind it, making it all flush-mount, like lower down where my switches are mounted. But I think glowing green behind it would be a little too much green on the dash, but I don't know. Still open to alternate ideas.

    That link ej20fan posted is how I have my radio mounted now. It just needs a little careful dremmeling but the pod is factory looking and after the radio is in with its included trim bezel, it looks awsome. Will try and post a pic later.

    That dash looks pretty cool all green like that, but isn't it too bright at night? I don't even have my dash lights turned up all the way. I hate having lights glaring in my face at night. Looks trick though!

    The Knack. It's a rare condition characterized by an extreme intuition about all things mechanical and electrical ... and utter social ineptitude.

    You could make a cover out of clear plexi, bending it to fit perfectly, and then sand-lbasting or frosting the rear. This way, the entire panel will golw green, and retain some texture, yet still be smooth to the touch.
