double din install from thedetailss.com

Just bought this kit from him and was wondering if anyone else has and how hard was it and does anyone have pics of it before and after?

I've used his kit, I'll post pictures of my install later. I had to buy new screws because the ones that came with my radio were too short. His bracket is kind of thick, but I'm thankful of that and I'll show you why later. I didn't like the face that he supplied, (it leaves too much of a gap around the radio), so I made my own.

I can't find my installation photos, but his site has some decent instructions here: http://www.thedetailss.com/uploads/I...structions.pdf

I didn't like my bezel, so this is how mines turned out after I made my own.


And his bracket is worth the money, one night someone tried to steal my radio. they messed up a bunch of ****, but they didn't get my radio.
