i [iece of Plexiglas, use a piece of card board to measure out the area and cut it to size. install and mare the area the radio will fit in. cut that out. now you have a template in your hands. take this to the shop your getting the Plexiglas from and have them cut it for you to shape. and put a piese of tint on the back (black works great or titanium". now remove the radio, remove the dash shield, install the plexi, hot glue will do or drill a few holes and screw it in. install the radio and dash shield. There you go a fully customized system.
There are two types of receivers. Double-DIN and single-DIN. Double-DIN is easy to see as it is DOUBLE the SINGLE-DIN's height. If your vechile is a single-DIN it will only be about 3-4 inches tall, while the DOUBLE-DIN is doulbe that 6-8inches tall.
If you have a DOUBLE-DIN in your car and are installing a SINGLE-DIN you will need a housing.
If you have a SINGLE-DIN in the vechile you will not be able to install a DOUBLE-DIN without heavy moddification and cutting.
i have a 2002 ford escape and i bought a double din radio and it did not fit and found out it is actually a din and 3/4 with out serious mods (cutting a bigger hole in dash) double din wont fit i bought a single din stereo and a din a 3/4 dash kit works fine
