Default Custom Radio Fake Plate

I recently upgraded my car audio and wanted to ensure my nice touchscreen radio wasn't stolen. I read around that the best way to deter radio thieves is to create a custom radio fake plate to fool them into thinking it is a factory radio.

So I took my Dremel tool and made one from an actual PT Cruiser radio plastic faceplate. It took 7 hours and costed me $80, but I think it was worth it. I don't live in the best area (Las Vegas actually) so protecting my radio is a must! It's by no means perfect, but it was my first Dremel project and it turned out decent. I'll post pictures below:

The fake plate itself:
