93 Double DIn

whats up guys, Im redoing the car and Im starting with the audio and i've been eyeballing a double din for a while now. I have a 93 LS and needless to say there aren't many people on here with that year and I can't find any information on anyone with a double din in the this years model. Well I did a search through google and it pulled this thread from a craigslist ad.
http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/cto/1624088937.html

The person in the add said that this is a 93 and what do you know there is a double din sitting right there. The install looks clean from the photos and it doesn't look like there was any movement of the climate controls or anything. I have a really good fiber glass guy that could cu the dash mat that comes over the top and extend the spot where my single din deck is but I am looking for any info from people that have done this install or know how this install was done with the original look.

my thoughts exactly so glad that I was able to get better advice about it this time around the last time I made this post (before the server crash) I was told that i would have to swap the climate controls and all types of crazy stuff....Now on to Sonic electronics to buy a double din
