What's up everyone I just bought a 2005 equinox. Love it but not happy with the radio looking to replace it as soon as I can find the right harness for the amplified system. Also looking to improve on exterior looks in due time.

thanks. I'm not sure what I want to do with the exterior I'm looking at a few options not but I definitely want to get a different grille. It's black so I was thinking about changing the crossbar on the grille to black also. What color is yours? Did you change anything? I'm still looking for the correct harness for my aftermarket radio.

At first I hit the wheels with Plasti Dip and found out that it made the wheels difficult to clean. DupliColor makes a spray can wheel paint which is what I used on the factory wheels. I also used the DupliColor clear gloss.
