Talking DIY: How to make your own double din w/ your oem Faceplate

THIS IS JUST TO PROVE A POINT THAT THE JDM AC CONTROLS CAN FIT IN YOUR OEM FACEPLATE!

Lots of people on the forum wanted to know can the 03-04 JDM Double Din AC control fit 03-04 your OEM faceplate.

Well the answer is Yes.

[QUOTE=G SEDAN;4496686]I must warn everyone that attempts to do this beforehand......unless you are doing some kinda custom fabbing and/or repainting after this, beware.

the double din finisher has tapered edges (it rolls in) for a cleaner install, if you cut the UDSM finisher, you will basically have a cut edge (no tapers). IT is also very difficult to cut a straight line using a dremel type of tool especially on plastic, so it is almost guranteed that you will have to do some bondoing and sanding after your cut. So unless you are really doing something custom, I'm saving you from a heartache LOL

For a jdm double din "Kit", the most costly part is the AC controller, so if you are already buying that, think about if the risk of cutting your USDM faceplate is worth the extra $100 or so you are spending to get a jdm finisher.[/quote]

Just follow my simple steps

1. OEM HU vs DD KIT
Click the image to open in full size.

2. Remove all 5 screws on the back of the OEM HU

3. Don't forget to remove the 5th screw in the middle of the OEM HU

4. Remove 2 screws on each side of the JDM DD KIT

7. Ac control is removed from the JDM DD kit

8. DD AC control
Click the image to open in full size.

9. Now it's time for the swapping of the DD AC control onto the OEM HU
Click the image to open in full size.

10.
Click the image to open in full size.

11. There you have it. DD AC control onto the OEM HU
Click the image to open in full size.



I will post more pictures of the finished product when i get a chance.

You can purchase the JDM ac control from Tony@RiversideInfiniti

All you have to do is cut out & fill in those holes.

prep & paint

hahaha you can already tell visually that it fits. But thanks for the proof.

Do you think by reusing the stock face plate with the square cut out that the bracket will still be within range to bolt up the DD nicely? It's really easy to have a JDM and USDM finisher side to side to cut it identically, but what if it's common person, they just have to freehand?


I must warn everyone that attempts to do this beforehand......unless you are doing some kinda custom fabbing and/or repainting after this, beware.

the double din finisher has tapered edges (it rolls in) for a cleaner install, if you cut the UDSM finisher, you will basically have a cut edge (no tapers). IT is also very difficult to cut a straight line using a dremel type of tool especially on plastic, so it is almost guranteed that you will have to do some bondoing and sanding after your cut. So unless you are really doing something custom, I'm saving you from a heartache LOL

For a jdm double din "Kit", the most costly part is the AC controller, so if you are already buying that, think about if the risk of cutting your USDM faceplate is worth the extra $100 or so you are spending to get a jdm finisher.

oh wow.....that Mr2 is awesome. I bet his electronics is worth more than the car itself

Not really sure if I'm digging how that nissan's screen is tilted way up. That looks molded so I doubt it can swivel forward, it must be a pain to look at and reach while driving.

I can't wait to see your setup man, you're doing some crazy off the wall stuff in there. I dont think we have much room to spare on the centner, so whatever you come up with will probably be pretty rare and sick. NICE!
