Double-DIN radio?

A friend sent me this - it looks like a well-made part (or kit?), but I don't have an Instagram or FB account, so I can't read everything:

Looks like it would be a nice kit but $300 for the trim and then what ever the radio cost you would really want that type of upgrade.

What I'm really curious about is how much of the dash has to be cut away (because I have other plans in this vicinity), and how the radio will mount afterward (so I can choose a radio that will fit well). I'd also like to read the PDF instructions.

-a full kit includes a bezel, a new pad, a new trim piece that's below pad, template to make 2 radio holding brackets, and pdf file instructions that have pictures. I only send out the instructions once the order has been made.

What needs to be cut is the cross piece separating the radio hole and hvac hole. Then there's a metal bracket up under the top of radio hole that's gotta go. Then shave maybe 8th inch off the top pf radio hole and you're done

- price on that ful kit is $300 shipped

-i offer cores on pads and the long trim below it
$50 for a pad. $20 for the trim

There is a down payment of $100 if you order.

-there's no current website just a facebook page called obs interiors. Here's a link just in case you do have facebook

-the pads in the kit have been cut to size, stripped the original vinyl off and repaired any foam that's damaged, then they get wrapped in marine grade vinyl leather. I choose that type because marine grade is uv resistant and handles temps well.

-the trim piece gets a section removed and plastic welded back together

-since i am a 1 man operation with a normal job that's 50+ hours a week and a wife at home so i have home duties as well. This makes wait times kind of tough. Currently as of right now i have a ton of orders and the wait ETA is May.
