Default Adding Double Din is not hard at all!!!!!!

OK for everyone thinking about adding a double din to their blazer or jimmy.

Whats needed?

Bezal with double din opening.
Metal straping(with holes predrilled)
Install kit. I used metra GM 1995-2009 kit

Remove factory radio.
shave 1/8'' of plactic above your factory radio opening.
Install your radio kit onto your double din
Break off all the taps on both sides of the kit.
Attach metal strap with screws included with your stereo(there really small screws)
put the radio in the hole to see where you need to put your metal straps.
place dash bezal over radio and start to align, after you have it straight and where you want it put all 4 screws in tight. After the 4 screws are in, it will 100 times better than the factory. it won't budge even when off roading lol

Its not a hard process at all, but trying to center it will test you alittle but all in all its not that hard

I did have to trim my bezal because my deck is a face off and it has to swing and tilt to open. If you install any other deck thats not a face off(only JVC has the face off option i think) you will not have to trim the bezal
