Re: [DML] Replacing Radio - how it's done?

I wouldn't do it this way since single-DIN consoles are available.   The 
edges will also be folded-over, doubling the thickness of the metal around  
the new stereo so that the console won't flex and the stereo won't hang down  
(point upwards slightly) from its own weight.  Besides, you need to pull  
the whole console anyway to cut it, so you might as well just replace it with 
an  improved part.
Personally, I just hate hacking up OEM parts.

Not sure  if my was the best. What I did was buy a single-DIN sized radio 
and used a  Dremel tool to enlarge the faceplate area to accomodate the size. 
You need to  be careful while doing this as it leaves the edges pretty 
thin. Masking tape  will help to ensure that you do not harm the black finish 
Then I used  a Delorean wiring diagram to connect the new radio's harness 
to the stock  wiring. 
This will allow a really clean installation and choice of  many radios.
