IIRC Massive Speed systems sells a 3-gauge mounting kit that plugs right into the dash in place of the radio.

that looks like a harness surround for a single DIN to fit in the factory radio space, basic piece for a aftermarket radio. it looks to me he made his own face and drilled hole to fit the gauges. that seems pretty simple

I just orderd mine today, It most likly would have been easy enough to make but there is not a whole lot of plastic on the sides on the h/u adapter, and it would take me foreven to make it as nice. Now I need the aluminum foot rest for pass side(rally style) any ideas, thanks everyone for lookin out!
