Be careful with what Crutchfield recommends. They sometimes recommend a 5.25" with an adapter ring because of the problems the OP had with the 6.5".
OP... why not just cut a new mounting ring? Would have saved you tons of time. Most custom shops even have pre-cut rings they will sell you for a few bucks.
just my 2 cents from spending lots of time behind car door panels.
