Is there any chance you can post pics of how you trimmed and carpeted your bulkhead to fill the gaps as I can't see follow the link on the forum.
Thanks for the Build thread hopefully going to be using some of your ideas on my own.

Unfortunately the link is to another member's post so I can't post the picture's directly, I forgot to take pictures while I did it.
But here's a copy of the post below

It's a Pioneer SPH-DA120 mate https://www.pioneer-car.eu/eur/products/sph-da120
I got it mainly for the apple car play so I can use google maps, spotify, Imessage, whatsapp through my phone on the display. It's not got DAB or built in Sat Nav though so I'd probably say it's the entry model for these type of head unit's. I'm happy with it though since it's got everything I need and I've bought their reverse camera to go with it so hopefully that works well once I connect it. I got it for around £250 off eBay which I thought was a steal as they're +£300 at normal retail price.
