I'd be happy with just the plastic...any updates?Got some bad news today... to do the speaker covers right with formed metal screen seems cost prohibitive even at runs of 500 units (250 per side). I'm curious to see if others have done the grill in plastic too or been able to get metal screens from old ones and use them in a new plastic frame?

I had a well laid plan, where i took my cracked up dash, and modified it to accept the double din, by removing the pull out cup holder, and then filling the missing plastic with ABS plastic, and epoxying it all together. I then smoothed it out using standard bondo, did as many rounds as I could before getting bored. I painted it with primer and then gloss black paint. But upon refitting it and placing the radio into its resting place the brittle plastic crumbled and some of the bondo fractured. (i have a bunch of wires back there, 2 USBs an HDMI, plus RCA's and a 4 channel isolator to reduce alternator whine to say the least) The radio did not really want to stay slammed in there, so I used more 2 part epoxy to attach the plastic trim piece. Its going to be a PITA to get it out, if need be, but lets hope that wont happen for a while.good for you! I didn't go for the price of the fascia either. took the complete unit out and rebuilt and remolded the broken parts, 12 of 14 mounting tabs. looks great, no more rattling & squeaks. w
at was your ghetto epoxy? I used ABS glue, takes a while to harden, but works well.
That's my fear, which is why I haven't bothered to yank the fascia out again to attempt repair, only to have it crumble upon reinstalling.I had a well laid plan, where i took my cracked up dash...upon refitting it and placing the radio into its resting place the brittle plastic crumbled ...
That's awesome! I'm ok without the wire mesh and HK logos, as I have a few I can reuse. The frame with mounting tabs is key for me.I'm getting close on the speaker grills... molds are complete and have done a couple test covers, HK logo piece 3D printed and doing forms for wire mesh covers. Should have something to show in a week or two.
