    After deciding i wanted to get an aftermarket head unit, as i had the dreaded volume problem, i didn’t want to have the head unit adapter bits of plastic that filled the missing holes!

    So using some fibreglass repair filler and spray paint i modified the original centre to look, hopefully, a bit better!

    This is what i ended up with and thought i would share! I am very pleased with the results!!

    Also got rid of the two buttons at the top!

    I really like that.
    Don't suppose you have an "progress" pics of it do you
    as in whilst you were making it different stages etc.
    I have modified an A4 or A6 adapter to fit mine and I have never been 100% happy with the overall result.
    The difference being in mine that I had double DIN HU before and have a single DIN now.

    I'm in the same boat, with a double-din stereo :( Had to chop up A4 adapter to fit the after market HU and was never happy with the result.

    roscoegray, that looks like a one hell of a job mate.

    Graham - You can leave them plastic things in and using fibreglass filler you can fill the gaps, sand a few times and then re-spray and it should look good. Just takes some playing with.

    Effect - I don’t think i have any pic's, when i get a chance i could write a little 'how to'.

    Glad you all like it, cheers for the comments!
