If its a DD you're using...... I've seen that you can file out the stock opening and it should fit snugly.....unless I read you wrong and you mean installing like under the the seat or something. lol [:)]

^or use common sense and do it the easy way by making a filler trim panel out of a sheet of abs.

Hawkeye,where did you get that stereo bezel?thats way cool.
There was a guy on here that was parting out a Sony Edition Focus. I paid a pretty penny for it tho. 75 bux. I've been thinking about talking to a friend that has access to a vacuum former to see if there's anyway we could build a few. My perfect solution would be to bondo/fiberglass in the gaps, and make it look like it was a 1DIN opening stock.

there really isnt much to it. just pull the stocker out, squeeze the 2 din in and remove the small foam block under the hazard switch and trim the 1/8" lip off the top of the radio bezel and pop it back on. if there are any gaps make yourself a filler plate out of a sheet of abs plastic.
