Metra vs. Scosche Dash Kits
Last post by
Jump to Latest
I wanted to post pics of the Metra dash kit. I think that it is a worthwhile alternative to the Scosche (if you are willing to paint it or if you dont mind black). I got my 2006 DC Tacoma about a month ago and I had been researching changing the stereo for a long time. I had read that the AI kit was not that good and that the Scosche was better, but I never read anything about the Metra. I ordered the Scosche Single DIN kit and the Alpine9851 at the same time. I ordered the radio from Crutchfield and they sent me the Metra kit (for free!). I first mounted hte radio on the Scosche and it looked ok but I wasn’t crazy about the paint job or the fit of the radio in the opening. In particular the large “shelf” on the bottom of the radio between the radio and the pocket. Also, the paint didn’t reach all the way into the pocket (you can’t see it but it tells you that the paint job was rushed).
Since I had the Metra kit I decided to give it a try to see how it would fit. I am pleased with the look. I think that I will be painting it and keeping it. HTe radio dies not seem to be so recessed into the opening and the “shelf: is not as deep as it is in the Scosche (it’s hard to gauge form the picture becaue of the angle). I like the fact that the kit has two main parts; the radio itself is mounted with the 10 mm bolts and one extra screw and the second part attaches with the clips. The Metra kit even came with the the 4 clips that it uses. The Metra kit is part number 99-8214 and for sure you can get it at Crutchfield.

Ha ha ha ha,
I was thinking the same thing, but then again I wasn’t too fond of the pics I’ve seen of the Schosche kit either.
I don’t like the Scosche kit just because of the shelf. I don’t see why people get such big boners over it other than the fact it’s painted. I think once the Metra kit is painted it’ll look really nice. I’d love to see what it looks like in double-din.
I think that kit would look a lot better if there wasn’t a bezel around the headunit.
Both kits have that bezel. I’ve got the Scosche – color is close but not exact to stock. I really don’t like the huge pocket they put below the head unit on the Scosche – larger than the darn faceplate of my stereo. The “dimples” on the top are a nice added feature I guess – makes it look more like the OEM one.
I think the Scosche is the best kit for a normal CD player.
For a flip out TV the American International kit would be best.
Reason being the Scosche kit opening is too high and the TV would be like 2 inches from the roof!
The American International opening is more centered and looks normal for a TV.

Walkthrough Metro Last Light Redux
Metro Last Light Redux
A small flashback to the past: the original “Metro-2033” ended with a triumphant rocket fireworks that left no stone unturned from the lair of the “Blacks” – sinister, creepy mutants, perhaps the most infernal creation of the post-apocalyptic fantasy of the creator of the setting Dmitry Glukhovsky. Now we have before us the continuation of the story: and not to say that the total destruction of evil led to something good, or at least taught people something. Now the Moscow metro, which has become a new world for the survivors of the nuclear holocaust, threatens to turn into an arena of bloodshed between people. At this rate, our brethren will destroy each other much faster than the mutants, and when they find their way down from the surface, they will meet only corpses, ashes and skulls bared with fury, looking into the emptiness of the tunnel.
In the new game, “Metro: Last Light”, we again play as Artyom. That is, he nevertheless managed in some unthinkable way to leave the Ostankino tower and go down, despite the stairs that collapsed during the ascent. This moment will not be explained to us (and not that it would be particularly interesting), but will immediately be thrown into the thick of things. Okay, let’s go.
The game starts with the gaping darkness of the tunnel, from which hellish creatures suddenly attack, and you need to shoot them. Or is it not so simple? In reality, this is an illustration of how the Black mutants have a corrupting effect on the human psyche (or neurology?): people begin to have visions. As a result, they succumb to hallucinations that are not of the most pleasant kind, and a massacre-civil strife begins. Here comes your first moral choice (there are more than a hundred of them in the game, and each of them will affect the ending): shoot at the unfortunate, hallucinating comrades or refrain from doing so? From abstinence, nothing terrible, by the way, will not happen, the script will just work.
Passage Metro last light redux
So, the year is 2034. “Last Light” starts in an old but still fully functional military storage facility known as D6. It was occupied by the Order of the Rangers, and it is here that Artyom wakes up, who is awakened by Khan. According to Khan, an attempt was made to establish contact with Artyom by Chernykh. An interesting guess. Khan and his ideas are taken away by Ulman, later we will see both of them again. So, now Artem is a ranger, an old dream has come true. A tablet containing tasks and a lighter is obtained by pressing [M], you can see which direction to follow in order to reach the current goal by following the green arrow. So far, we are not in a hurry, and you can walk around the area, assess the situation, look at your comrades-in-arms, join the pace, in general, harmoniously enter the game universe. When you walk up, go to the armory, where Artyom will get the equipment of a young fighter: his kit includes a gas mask, two gas filters, a first aid kit and a handful of cartridges. Ammo, by the way, is also the local currency (the setting is still post-apocalyptic), so don’t accidentally shoot your entire “purse” by holding [R] longer than necessary.
Inventory is shown by pressing [TAB]. Choose your weapon, you can carry no more than three of its units at the same time. For happy pre-orderers of the game (or no less happy pirates), the RPK is available for choice, perhaps the best gaming trunk. What exactly to choose for personal weapons is up to you, you can advise a shotgun (with an elongated barrel) and the already mentioned RPK.
Armed? Test your shooting skills at the shooting range. Aim the first dummy at the body, the second (armored) at the head. If it turns out that you are not as great a sniper as you thought, either practice or change weapons, maybe that’s the truth. When you’re ready, move on (that is, through the kitchen). Ulman and Khan are already waiting for Artyom there, all together they will go to the gate to the station. Behind the gate, a bizarre spiral elevator awaits you, moving in a huge well. A beautiful sight. At its highest point is the entrance to the command center, where a general meeting is held (Melnik wants to discuss burning issues with the squad leaders). Follow Khan inside and watch him get arrested for being overly liberal about Blacks and possible contact with them.
Melnik gives Artyom the first mission: to find the surviving Cherny and. .. not destroy him. The sniper Anna, Melnik’s daughter, will destroy him, and Artem will serve only as a gunner. Not bad for the first time, you can go to the elevator. If you linger, you will hear about the legendary Lesnitsky: that he turned out to be a mishandled Cossack woman and disappeared in an unknown direction with a laboratory container. The freight elevator will send you and Anna down into the darkness, where the monorail will serve, which will take you to the first adventure.
We have arrived. Fireworks are not met, even more, there is no light at all. Turn on the flashlight (F) and pull the switch to go outside. You will practically fall out into the sewer of the most vile kind, along which a mutant is running somewhere in the distance into the unknown (you can show your class and have time to shoot him). Then Artyom and Anna find a ladder and get out to the surface, to the ominous light of day. Don’t forget to put on the gas mask (G), otherwise this light will be not only ominous, but also fatal. There is a watch on Artyom’s left hand, it shows how much resource is left in the filter.
Got out. It looks like it used to be a botanical garden. Devastation is everywhere, twisted metal, puddles that are better not to step into, a fallen Ferris wheel, as a symbol of the Earth itself, which has flown onto the celestial axis … while we are enjoying the landscape, Anna decides that Artyom will find Chernoy on her own with much greater effect, and herself goes to the “gate” from the ruins to cover. There is no black yet, only Guardians, and quite a lot (only three packs).
Having dealt with them, we meet Cherny, but what is it? This is a cub, and he obviously wants to live, runs away with such speed that he cannot be shot. Catch up with him and grab him: in the scripted scene, the Black Kid shows Artem how he was the only one of all his relatives who escaped from a terrible explosion. This sight turns out to be too much for Artyom.
Game review Metro Last Light Redux
Good morning, Artem. The awakening is not too pleasant: you have been captured by the guys from the Reich. They also captured a little Black with such a dramatic fate, and two Reds who appeared from somewhere, apparently when you were out. Although the Reich and the Reds are at war (who would doubt it), they, in theory, have nothing against the Order of the Rangers. However, apparently within the framework of a wise policy “we’ll sort it out there”, Artyom is dragged to a concentration camp, where they are thrown along with the others. One of the red partisans finds his martyrdom, however, having cooperated with the second (named Pavel), Artem manages not to disgrace the memory of his ancestors and crush the fascist reptile.
What’s next, Artem? You can’t get out through the door, so you have to go lower and lower into hell. Through the garbage chute we get into the sewer, and it is full of corpses. Further we see a well, and it is also full of corpses. Above it are cells with people who were not lucky enough to be born with anomalies … a completely infernal spectacle, truly, the Nazis are equally monstrous in their actions, both before the apocalypse and after. Follow Pavel in the shade to the grate, put him on the stairs, climb up. Next is a short stealth walk, follow the instructions of an experienced red guerrilla. At the top, reach the officer on the right and kill (or stun if you can). Lower the ladder using the lever. It is interesting that the prisoners in the cages are instructing Artyom on further actions.
As a result, you must unscrew the “eye” from the spotlight at the top. Pavel, for his part, will turn off the whole world and leave. Walk along the bridge in the dark (if you can), there is another fascist, and another ladder, and most importantly – a pipe, very narrow and creepy. If Artyom crawls through it, in the process he will hear a very dramatic family story in a conversation between two fascists. On the other side, you can get throwing knives from the corpse (an excellent silent murder weapon).
Get back to where the cages are and press the call button (it’s at the top of the stairs). A sentry will appear – kill him or let Pavel do it. After going inside, close the gateway by turning the lever.
Now Pavel will make Artyom’s life easier by giving him a barrel with a silencer. In the sewers there will be patrolmen with machine guns, as well as a lever that opens the cages (on the panel near the window). Help Pavel open the lock (lever on the wall). Metro Last Light Redux
