    Question double din to single din fascia adaptor alternative?

    right, so i have an idea. i hate the fascia adapter available because i want the single din HU to sit lower and the compartment bit to be on top of it. so, would it work if i had a double din cage, fitted my single din HU on the lower section, and bought one of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DOUBLE-DIN...d#ht_500wt_934 to sit on top of it, finished off with a double din fascia surround. how does this sound? is it possible? all comments welcome. thanks.

    PaZ!

    It would work but it will look daft, why do you want the headunit lower ? I've got the connects 2 facia and it's not the best looking facia in the world (right colour and fits well though) but it does the job and does it well.

    If your really that fusesd about it why not buy the double din fitting kit and make a custom facia then you can have whatever you want

    I want the HU to sit lower because it has a flip out screen, & if i install it higher then it would obstruct the dashboard screen that I have. If I buy a double din fitting kit then I can make my own custom fascia? That sounds brill. Where can I get one from?

    just seen your thread Mr Owens, i have a very similar HU to yours, and as you can see the flip out screen covers most of the dash screen. i dont want this, ideally i want my HU to be where your cubby hole is in the pic, and i would like my cubby hole to be sitting on top of the HU.

    From that angle it looks like it covers it but from the drivers seat you can see 95% of the screen
