Default Double Din Radio

Before I started this install I really wasn't sure how it would be done. Being told that I would have to do some cutting to the heater control, I wasn't sure how that would work and still have something to hold the clear cover that clips to the heater control panel. But after I got the radio I only had to cut the little metal strip between the heater control panel and the radio and the plastic radio trim, I was even able to get a couple of bolts back into the heater control panel. All in all I think it came out great. Oh, and while I had the heater control panel out, I thought about a little change was in order so here is what I came up with.







With the dash lights on.

Looks cool, Dee!
I hope it doesn't distract you when you're driving...

I will take some with the radio flush, open(to install a disk), off, and with the face detached when I get home from work.
