Double Din Problem

Postby Darkninja452 » Sat May 04, 2013 9:13 pm

I have today brought myself a double din radio/dvd/cd/mp3/bt player I would like to know where exactly I need to trim behind the fascia to allow it to fit ?

Has anyone ordered an ebay double din fascia adapter before ? how did they get on ?

Regards

No need to trim anything if you pick up a double din fitting kit. :-)

Could somebody supply a link of the kit they mean ? as the ones I have seen don't have the little spacers left and right as shown above ?
