I made a double-din Alpine fit in my dash... YABBA DABBA DOO!
Outer "screen" material I cut from a paper shredder basket and bent it with thumbs and hammers till symmetrical (maybe some led backlighting in the future). I used a soldering iron to cut out the useless flaps of plastic inside the dash that hold the stock unit in place, and I attached some heavy guage mending plates to the security basket that came with the deck so as to affix it to the stock mounting locations. Deck is a touch screen digital multi-media platform (no cd input - just Ipod, micro-sd and rca video, etc... looks like the back of a frickin computer tower!!!). This summer I'm hooking up the 'back-up cam' on a switch with another mounted on the front, therefore tricking it so I can see what's at my front and rear bumpers on command. bli-zing.

Reason: added info
put together an age old mod of a dual switch panel. there are some great write-ups on this
mine will hold the arb switches and a switch for torque converter lock-up and another for tcu or railshifter selection.
i need to figure out what to do with the empty hole there which is open for suggestions.
another power outlet may come in handy i know i use mine a good amount of time
