01 Intrepid Double Din in dash GPS pics

I just finished installing a double din gps stereo in dash. Here are some pics.

It took about 3 days from start to finish.

I'm not overly a fan of the shiny black paint on it (I'm not a fan of 'shiny' interiors tho) but it looks to be A grade for construction!! Looks awesome!! Good job!

Gps

Its really flat black. It only looks that way because I coated the entire dash with some furniture polish. Here is what it really looks like. I too do not like the gloss look. The cover panel was rather easy to make.

Thanks for the compliments.

Would like to know how you managed to mount the double din in there...

I had to "remove" a cross brace inside. I also made a metal brace that the unit mounts to and mounts to the dash opening. Once that was in place, I remolded the cover piece and gave the outside a similar texture as the original. The heat/AC controls mounts to the cover just lie the original, just lower down the dash. The tolerances are so tight that I am reluctant to remove the cover and radio to take pictures.

Looks good!

I've been playing with ideas of moving my MTC/ATC and installing a touch-screen deck in mine as well.

Did you do much cutting and modification to the console portion of the dash construction internally?

I did absolutely no mods to the center console portion at all. I only removed one cross support that is above the original radio (I think). I also had to "trim back" a couple cover mounting tabs because the heat/ac is a bit wide. I probably would not have had to do that if i had mounted the controls a bit higher. But I put the heat/ac controls at the bottom edge of the CD player hole on the cover. I may at some point try to move the heat/ac controls up a bit, but I like it just fine having the nav unit at the center of attention rather than the heat/ac controls. As far as the cover goes, That took me 3 days to complete and the tolerances for radio position is so freakin tight that when i removed the radio and reinstalled it, I was off slightly and was a lot of trouble to get lined back up.

I like how you have the heat and air controls lowered down. Looks great
