First and foremost would be my biggest problem which is will the Alpine ILX 007 fit in the double din space?also, can I modify the existing bezel or how would I go about getting one that would fit the Alpine ILX 007

Truly grateful,

James,
This definitely wasn't a small task...
1. I selected the smallest depth (quality) radio that I could find.
2. I designed in Solidworks a 3D model of the bezel - Had to learn how to work with 3D surfaces - Thank you Youtube.
3. I 3D printed the bezel and since I knew I couldn't match the color of the paint Mas used, I figured it would be best to Carbon Fiber Wrap the part.
4. Due to depth limitations of the console of the Mas, I had to modify everything to do with the outputs of the radio (see picture). I converted the input/output connectors to wired leads, so there would be no bulky connectors out the back of the radio. I also had to machine down the aluminum heatsink to get more clearance. I was using an external amp so I figured it wouldn't generate much heat.


Several more steps later.... it was completed.

The bezel I made was made to fit the Alpine radio exactly - I am not sure it will fit other Double Din radios, as I made the plastic match the exact edges and screw locations of the Alpine.

Yes to both questions...
The Solidworks file is pretty hard to adjust (make changes) as I was learning as I made the file, but I would be happy to share.
To print a bezel and add the brass insets - I would say $100 just to cover material and my time.

My Focal subwoofer seems to hit a little harder than the stock subwoofer, so much so that it will hit the stock sub grill causing an annoying rattle. I figured I should fix the issue. Here is version 2 of my sub grill with 0.625" of clearance added. I may add a wire mesh or something if this doesn't print nicely.


Anyone wants the files - I can share.

Finished Product. 3D Printed Sub Grill. I am sure I could have done something a bit cleaner - like source some metal screen material which was a thought as it would hide the layering of the 3D printing...but this is good enough for now.

thanks for this info, can anyone help or did you ever succeed with relocating a hazard switch? I'm trying to use the six-pin harness from the factory display or the flasher relay under the steering wheel. Can anyone help with wiring or pinouts?

Edwin247 - you, Sir, are a hero. I recently bought a 2004 Coupe and while the exhaust note provides enough entertainment for now, replacing that dreadful audio/phone/NAV system is on the list. Your experience here provides quite the comprehensive guide.
