Some interior stuff

Installed a pioneer 2440 double din had to use a dodge ram mount and had to have my amp bypassed but I love it. Also did my first shot at wrapping my steering wheel in paracord might redo it but good enough for my first attempt took me about an hour and a half watched a movie while I did it lol. What y'all think? I tried to use the whole 100 feet in one continuous piece but only used about 90 feet. It's a 5 layer paracord with snare line and fishing line in it for that just in case. Lol

I had a Pioneer AVH-X490BS CD/DVD RDS AV Double Din head unit with Sirius XM Receiver installed toward the tail end of Dec 2017. I still have it and have had no issues.

It runs through my 77KICK18AB 8 Channel, 368 Watt amplifier (MOPAR KICKER upgrade) with no issues and the stereo/audio shop that installed it, even ordered & installed the correct adapter that hooked right up to the factory harness for the back-up camera;

I'm curious about what issue you had, that caused you to bypass the factory amp?

I like the paracord wrap on the steering wheel, that's pretty unique.

I had to bypass the amp or wait to get the right harness for the amp. The guy at the stereo sold me the wrong harness and I had installed everything and had no sound so I brought it to the shop paid him $45 and he bypassed it for me. The harness I needed they woulda had to order and I wanted to jam so... lol. Sounds so much better than stock it's crazy. The bass in these stock 6x9s is surprising. And thanks on the paracord i did a little more today shift knob and e brake.

Seems like you have that down to a science.

The wrapping reminds me of the stuff we did in the Navy. Looks great.

Thanks guys I got the idea from a fisherman who was retired navy. I have to burn a few ends on the knob and I'll post a pic of that. The knob was so hard lol. I'm debating on door handles and making custom o **** handles (I don't know what there really called) lol

Yep, I'm a Navy Desert Storm Veteran myself and I currently sail with the Navy now, as a Civilian U.S. Merchant Marine.

I see these kind of wrappings all the time, never would have thought to incorporate it into my XK though....pretty cool.

I'll probably redo it all eventually now that I've had practice but for now I'm satisfied. the steering wheel is a different knot type from the e brake which is much cleaner and faster so I'll probably redo it all in that style.

Since you're debating making custom 0h S#&T handles. AKA grab handles.
Try rapping in luxurious leather. Very classy and easier to clean than paracord.
Check out mine.
