Double DIN Conversion Write-up Interest

Just got done converting my '00 Boxster S to a double DIN and took some pictures along the way. I was curious if there's anyone out there who would be interested in a detailed write-up. I had a hard time finding anything particularly detailed for myself so just kinda wung it, but if there's enough interest I'd gladly throw something together to give someone else an easier time.

Yeah Matt, Id read whatever you put here real closely. Ive been good thus far with no sound, but that clean looking install you have there... pretty awesome to see.

A good write up is always appreciated. I’m thinking of getting the new Porsche Classic Double Din. It is a little pricey but it looks like a decent unit.

What model radio is that fits really well? List of parts and sources very much appreciated!

I have a 2003 with MOST so a real nightmare to change out and possibly the amp too or just bypass amp direct to speakers. A spring project maybe if I can find a used radio off eBay maybe...

Call crutchfield - I cannot say enough good things about them. No matter what it is youre trying to do, they will help to make it happen. And they make it super easy for you, plus you get free support forever, with a real live human living in the US.

Looks really 👍
Which installation kit was used, I'm thinking of the surrounding frame parts
