Finally replaced my Metra face plate!!

Well back when I installed my Metra dash kit for the DNX-571HD head unit, my buddy who was assisting me pressed too hard on the face plate and cracked the screen. It didn't affect the function of it. It just put a blurtch in the top right corner as you can see. And it blocked the outside temp reading and the passenger side heated seat indicator. So I figured I would eventually replace it. Fast forward to 2 years later and I finally replaced it. Looking back, I probably could have just sent the cracked one back and lied and said it arrived broken and got it replaced for free, lol! But being the honest person I am (meaning I just didn't think about it at the time, LOL!) I figured I would eventually buy a new one to replace it myself. So I bought a new dash kit and used the face plate and now everything is as it should be. No more cracked screen!! Looks much better don't ya think??!! And I'll tell ya, something as little as that made driving my car soo much more enjoyable. That crack was an eye sore for real!!

Sorry but no picture of it when the cracked one was on the car. Trust me, it was horrible.
