Radio Bezel

Depends on what type of radio you have.

Both Metra and Schoshe make nice ones. If you have a fold down face be careful. They require more clearance. Ford also makes the Sony bezel to fit single DIN radios, but I have found out it is over $100 new.

I have a Metra kit installed on mine. I will post a pic after I take some tomorrow. Take your time and check out a good website like sounddomain or crutchfield. Research saves time and money in the end!

i got this for my aftermarket deck: http://www.sounddomain.com/shop/item...70B&vq_id=none

it was the cheapest one i found around, but that was in july, and prices change. i am very happy with it.

this one is also available from the same website, just a dif design: http://www.sounddomain.com/shop/item...75B&vq_id=none

i also really like this website. everything i ordered (dash kit, wiring harness, antenna adaptor) came quickly, & very well packaged.

Radio Install

Here is the pic of the kit as promised. It took some work to get it to fit. Heating the piece and some bending, but it looks OK now. This is not the kit for radios with the fold down faceplate though. This one is Metra, they have a special Scoshe kit for the fold down faces.

that kit looks kinda crappy, doesnt seem to fit right.

the kit i got just popped right in, no heating or bending, looks really good to. i will try and post some pics if you want, but all i have is a camera phone, which means no good picks. let me know if you want it anyway.
