I like your approach, since it would keep me from completely butchering my dashboard. I would appreciate knowing the model number of the radio and any comments you find appropriate about installation and fit.

Thanks

there are many single DIN flip out head units on the market.

You can get them with or without navigation and price differs significantly

This is just an off the shelf pioneer head unit with navigation

Had it for about 3 years with no problems.

Installation can be tricky since you have to run wires to a hard drive and find a space to put it, but you could do it yourself.

I think it looks awesome, would've totally done it on my D2 but not on my Classic... But to find a radio Bezel for a 95 Classic in decent condition is almost impossible.

Been a while since I really messed around with my D2... Ive gotten back into it now so heres an update on the whole AV system.
I ditched the old Pioneer for a new Pioneer Z140. I love it! Navigation, bluetooth, back up cam, awesome iPhone integration, Pandora, etc... It has everything.
This is the final result of "cleaning up" the dash that I made. I think it looks pretty good, and everyone I show is surprised its not factory. I know a real enthusiast would point it out in a second, but its not a show car and I like how it came out. The last feature I am missing is steering wheel controls... Ill have to custom program an aftermarket controller to work with the factory Rover system since no one makes anything.
Aside from the head unit, I added a small ported sub box and amp in the back. When its done, the average on-looker wouldnt think twice about it not looking factory.

Sorry for the crappy pics... I can never get the lighting right.



The box is a bit on the small side for a 12" sub, and I would probably have gone with a 10" if I were to do it again. The port exhausts through the factory vent. I still need to come up with a new mounting solution for the top and side panel with a grill


I used a Kicker DX500.1 Amp in the passenger side ccompartment... Just so happened that the mounting holes line up with the large push pins that hold the side panel on. Lucky break!


While I had everything apart, I went ahead and added a remote start system with Vipers "smart start" so I can start/unlock/lock it from anywhere. Great system! If anyone has any questions about wiring the remote start dont hesitate to ask... its really not too difficult on these cars

vette427sbc ***PLEASE HELP***

I'm obsessed with your radio upgrade posted and recently purchased a 2001 D2... I have big hopes for my old beauty and it starts with a proper radio dash. Do you have a YouTube video or email where I might be able to get the step by step process?
