Replace Head Unit with Tablet.

Talking to my brother today at Christmas about how I dislike my head unit in my car and I always dislike aftermarket head units so I was thinking about replacing it with an android tablet.

Does anyone have ideas on how I can get the wiring for sound to go to a straight auxillery cable so that I can hook it up to the tab?

Also had anyone done anything with custom molding that I could look at and get ideas?

Check out "Amplified" on YouTube. They're a company that specializes in iPad and android tablet installs to replace headunits
