any radio techies central mass

i bought an eclipse double din nav unit for my wife's 04 focus. i need help installing it, or even paying to have it professinally installed. i have been dealing with micorp, but can't get the guy to return my calls, so i think he lost interest. i know the 04 is 1.8 din, but i have a spare trim panel that can be modified. we are taking a trip at the end of this month, and would like to have it in by then. any help is appreciated. thanks.

-jon

I'm going to move it here for you. Maybe someone can give you step by step instructions on how to do it yourself.

i my 03 i mounted it with a plumbing strap behind the bezel. I just then had to trim 2 of the 4 bezel mounting tabs. I then reinstalled the ezel and made a trim ring for the radio. Pretty simple.

i found a competent(sp) shop somewhat nearby that will install for $150. that includes installations, harness(i have and will try to have them use to save cash), and $50 to modify my spare center trim piece and make a trim ring. i jumped all over it, and it will be done worst case by the end of them month. i left hime the trim panel and the radio so he can get those mated together ahead of time.
