Hi everyone!

I have upgraded my fg xr6t audio with alpine head unit mounted under ICC with amplifier, sub, speakers and all.. and while it has functionality I was after (bluetooth streaming), I got bored of it and hate the looks of this headunit protruding from tissue box.

Now I decided to put android in.
First thing is to put 7" screen in, followed with all electronic control gear (front and rear cameras, apps, bluetooth calling and streaming etc.).
And this is where I realised I have a major problem!

Since my factory audio MKI ICC was basic crap,
it means that the monochrome screen is 6".
Too small for 7" upgrade and not enough space behind it ( about 50mm).

Does anyone know where I can get ICC MK2 fascia ONLY, as they should have enough space behind to integrate any screen around 7".

If I can get this somewhere, factory ICC MK2 unit will not be able to compare in functionality with Android with all supporting upgrades (apps, maps, cameras, and experience as a whole).

Since, I'll be doing all those upgrades myself, my estimate is it's gonna cost me well under a grand with a range of features that factory ICC simply doesn't have.
If anyone knows where to get this ICC MK2 fascia I would greatly appreciate your help.

Hey, you are true KING!
Hope this top mk2 fascia will fit bottom mk1 fascia. I know I'll have to get new top cover as well for mk2 fascia.
If it fits, it'll give me unlimited options of installing any 7" full hd screens with rest of the support gear.
