Default Double Din is done in our 2003

Just thought I would share a couple pics of the finished double din conversion

I made room for the new Kenwood to slide into the dash. Modified and painted the bezel to match the rest of the cars dash that was PB5 blue from the factory.

Install
Kenwood DDX 419 ( replacing with a DNX 6990 when we get more next week)
Kenwood x700.5 5 channel mini amp under driver seat
Pioneer Sub box
Diamond Audio 6.5" components in front
Diamond Audio 5.25 coax in rear

Overall this install was really simple and one of the easiest double din conversions we have done.


This car started out as a bad motor and dented door csar we bought for a shop truck.
More info on that can be found here

What unit are you using for the touch screen. Do you know if it will interface with the OEM sub and speakers?

Looks great

Hey their DoubleD,

Good looking and got to give you props on a clean install done the right way. I have seen many attempts where they cut all the way through either the top or bottom of the structure of the bezel which not only looks funny, they don't pay much attention to fitment of supporting the unit and it just turns into a mess.

I wasn't brave enough and just settled for doing a 1 DIN with an EQ under.



Anywayz, looks like a job well done and way cool mod worthy of the coveted Fro Award for going above and beyond the cool factor.
