I got a boy who is in the process of getting screens in the headrest and getting a 2 Din put in his 96 impala.
So my question is, is there any clean install pictures of a 2 DIN in the dash, major modification ok since this is a custom install.
He is trying to get it flush but then he has to loose his woodgrain around the knobs.
Any links to pictures or a step in the right direction would help.

without getting too complex....the trim should be mounted and glued from the back. Then body filler is used to make it smooth. The head unit needs to be mounted first for the trim to be secured in the right location. Take your time and remove the factory stereo bracket that goes behind the factory unit and flush the monitor. Then go on to the trim.

96palapaxtonblown - does your panel have a glare to it or does it tilt or are you able to have it tilt or angle?

Rod, Texas's Impala is sitting in the bay at my shop as we speak. I plan on leaving the AC controls where they are, I just don't see any reason to move them unless you just want to. You still need to come check out the shop ya bum! I will try to post some pictures, before/during/after.

The 396 Made it off the stand a couple of years ago. I just gotta "finish it up".

I got the Radio mounted and the dash cut out. I filled in the extra space on either side of the radio. There is enough room to recess the screen flush with the dash. I primed it last night and will hopefully get it sanded and painted today.
