2003 double din stereo install

My buddy always wanted a double din stereo and was it would work. Well they were wrong.

I pulled the dash and cut out the 2/3" lip that held in the factory . Do not cut the lip on the sides. I just cut the top and bottom lip.

The factory housing is wider then the stereo its self. So, you will need to find the center point. Then you will need to make your own brackets.

With a little time you can get it to look just about factory.

I also hooked the dvd safety mode to work on a switch, instead of having to set the e-break.

He was told that it wouldnt work. No audio places would even sell him a stereo for it.
