  • 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....

          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.

                    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?

                      possibly the 4runner. (they are the same vehicle right? or is this the land cruiser, i thought that was the LX)

                        The metra kit will help with mounting, but will it solve my problem of having a 9 x 5 opening and and 7 x 4 radio?

                          All metra kits make it so you can install either a single din or a double din radio.

                            That is the whole point. Do you even know what a Metra kit is? It takes weird funky shapes and makes them normal din sized.
