    Need Help with Enclosure in GX 470

    I own a Lexus GX 470 without navigation. I want to install a double din LCD screen.

    http://clarion.com/us/en/products/20...294767357.html

    The problem is that the opening will be 9 x 5 3/8 and the radio is only double din (7 x 4) and nobody makes bezels for this vehicle. Any ideas. I have never created anything other then a clay pot in elementary school, so not sure if I could make something, plus, the dash is not a color that would be easy to replicate. Attached is a picture of the dash area.


    Any suggestions. Do you know of any places that where I can have something made?

    Depending on the year, Metra double din kit, or get a nav bezel.

    I am hoping the end result looks something like this....

    On a side not, I posted this topic in the newbie section since it looked like this posting did not take. Can the moderator delete one of them?

    search for a user, rando. he has a 4th gen 4runner that is very similar.

    here it is:http://mp3car.com/vbulletin/show-off...a-4runner.html

    my best guess would be to find that navi bezel and start with that.
    1998 Toyota 4Runner SR5 V6 4x4 in Evergreen Pearl Metallic, Lifted, Locked, and Armored. CarPc in custom console with molded touchscreen.

    RedGTiVR6: Any idea which double din kit to get. When I go to there site and select products, it asks for me to enter my vehicle info. Well it does not show as having a double din kit for my vehicle. Any idea what vehicle I could use in its place?
