    In this picture, I drew red lines to show where I needed to make adjustments:

    Here is what I imagined it to look like after mods:

    First I used 5 minute epoxy to glue the trim ring onto the kit. After that set up, I cut out the bottom pocket to make a full double din opening in the front. Then I had to grind some plastic off so the Bybyte would fit between the top mounting brakets.

    I also had to shave a little off the inside of the bottom brackets to make the bottom of the Bybyte fit between the two. In both instances, the Bybyte was a fraction of an inch too wide.

    I removed some material from behind the front benzyl to allow the Bybyte unit to slide in right behind the benzyl. Before doing this, I had a gap between the benzyl and the front of the Bybyte kit. I could have filled the space between the two pieces. I decided this way should be better. I thought it would look better and be easier to reach the screen.

    Then I used a hand file to clean it all up. I rummaged through my toolbox until I found the roughest file. I spent a lot of time with this tool smoothing everything out and trying to get all the lines straight. I used a small ruler as a gauge to check each side of the LCD opening to get is as close to straight as possible. Then I went over the entire project with 50, then 100 grit sand paper. I had some deeper scratches and gaps where I glued the trim ring in. I used some bondo and filled in the small gaps. Again, I went over these areas with 100 grit paper.

    This is where I glued the trim ring:

    I then installed the Bybyte unit into the install kit, and bolted it into the dash. I found out that I had to shift the Bybyte unit back on the frame by almost a 1/2”. The top and bottom of the Bybyte hit the inside of my dash. I then readjusted the bolts holding the Bybyte into the install kit so the Bybyte unit was pressed against the inside of my dash. Once the bolts where tight, I remove the entire assembly out of the dash. I then added filler strips to the inside of the install kit so they touched the Bybyte unit.
