    FM transmitter is ok, but does have some static depending on frequency and location.

    Tap into a wire that’s hot on ignition only and slap a relay up there.

    I think I might just leave it as is...that way the media can still play with the car turned off. Everything seems to work good and the CANbus is unaffected.

    Looks great. Lucky kids!

    Been seeing Nissan advertise their rear view mirror (which doubles as the back-up camera) being able to be switched on when the view is obstructed. That'd be something I'd want next -- with the tiny factory RSES screen I really had limited rear-view mirror use when the kids had it folded down, can't imagine you can see anything with that 15 inch monster.

    The headliner material is super thin when pulled from the foamish backerboard its adhered to, so suspect you could easily form some kind of patches at some point if you wanted to.

    Hey thanks, ya with the screen down, it's pretty much like a black curtain on the rear windows haha...but it was kind of obstructed with the factory screen as it is so not much difference.

    As for the headliner gaps, maybe I'll do something about it later on, but it's actually not really bothersome for me at this point (yet) haha.
