Double-DIN radio bezel for 2002 Boxster?

Does anyone know if something like this exists and where I can buy it? I want to installa a double-DIN aftermarket radio with navigation into my 2002 Box S, but the upper dash opening (where the radio and cupholders are currently) is taller than a standard 2DIN opening, which is 4". I measured the opening to be close to 5", if the radio and cupholders are removed.

So I am looking for some sort of dash kit or bezel that will let me install a 2DIN radio and close up the rest of the gap. I've searched and can't find anything.

Can someone help me out? Thanks!

I pretty sure you have to fabricate or get a shop to fabricate a custom bezel.

I was afraid of that... everything I have been reading suggests that a bezel needs to be custom fabricated. With the number of Boxsters and 911s out there, why isn't there something available that one can buy? It's truly aggravating - it seems like certain manufacturers go out of their way to make a dash opening that is not quite standard so as to make our job difficult and/or expensive.
