Is this legit? I always thought there would be a lot of custom work involved since we only have a 1.5 din radio.

The 6liter "kit" doesn't appear to be a "kit". It looks like a single piece of textured plastic sheet that has been accurately cut to provide an opening for the HVAC panel and to contain the double DIN head unit. Nothing that you couldn't make yourself with a bit of patience. Maybe the "texture" looks better with some paint on it. Does not appear to match anything else on the dash.

Not bad for what it is, but it isn't a "kit".

That was what I was sort of thinking, but after some more looking i found this as well. This one looks like it is an actual kit, it's at least priced like an actual kit would be. I can't find any reviews on it though.

nope, not a kit.... still just hte trim (bezel) piece is all it is........

" we have decided to custom make by hand, a double din bezel for your Firebird to allow you to upgrade to newer features like NAV and DVD. All bezels will be made for you at the time order is placed "

That is a kit in a way. There is a $13 adder for the brackets, etc. Interesting that they will instead modify your bezel for $10 less.

Again, that looks like a simple bezel. Better looking than the first one, maybe explaining why it costs $100.

Although wonder if you could buy the cheaper $60 bezel from the other place and just the $13 bracket kit from that place.... so a total of $73... saves u $27
