ok so i'm fairly new to this and i just purchased a jvc avx 710 and am trying to get it installed; problem is there is not a double din kit made for a 1997 deville; only single din!! does anybody have any advice on how to go about installing it or how to make a custom kit?

If you know your way around a saw you can make your own kit. That's what I do and it ends up looking pretty good if the stain looks good. Of course with the 1997 Deville it might be harder to fit because the edges of the bezel are rounded, while the 91-93 Deville's is square.

Double din will not fit without some major modification. The opening is only big enough for a din and a half (factory size) and the double din will not fit unless you enlarge the opening (cutting up the dash).

Is the opening smaller on later Devilles? Because my double-din 7 inch DVD player fit perfectly back in 1991. It was actually to small for the bezel. :confused:
