Default Double din install

Hello, everyone.

I'm looking to install a double din radio in my 2001 touring edition pt. I found the bezel over at Double D mods, and will probably end up buying it. What other modifications do I have to make to the inside of the dash? Also, what unit would you guys recommend to hook in, and would I need any adapters?

If you get it from Double D then Dennis will tell you everything you need to do.

This is mine but I have not yet installed. I also got a Kenwood Stereo from him as well.

It does take commitment to do a Double-Din in a Gen-1 PT Cruiser;Buying the bezel is the easy part....Cutting & chopping out the inner structure of the dash is the hard part.
