It was a really tight fit getting my Alpine CDA-9833 to fit in my dash without using the extension.

havent seen any besides that guy making the trim with the LED lighting and bonneville emblem on it

besides, those kits arent exactly cheap, this cost me 3 bucks

also, i feel a sense of accomplishment doing this. do you feel the same by typing in your CC#?
