din plate for head unit

Currently I have an eclipse indash unit in the top din and the open rubbish holder under it. I was thinking about using my old alpine to run my ipod through since the eclipse ipod interface is like $80 (and from what i hear, not that great). does anyone know of a place where you can get a plate that holds 2 single din recievers in the dash? Ive seen a few people on here that look like they might have cut a similar one that I have, but nothing that looks like it was actually made for it.

Nahhh. Itll be a lot of work. You will probably need to splice and duplicate all the radio wires. Just Harwire your iPod into a FM Modulator. Theres sites all over google that sell em for like $60, and it hardwires your iPod into your radio as a radio station. good luck

Or you could just get tha aux input cable and actually just change the settings on for your ipod.... manuall! lol. I know, a bit sarcastic but if you are that against the ipod interface (and who can blame you at that price) i say just go with the aux input cable and control the ipod on the actuall ipod. shouldn't be that much harder to do then changing it on the deck. Quick, easy, and inexpenive fix for you.

If you have a newer one, you should have an aux input port on the back of the unit you can use. I know the models for the past 2-3 years have had an aux input in them.

You really don't have to pull it out to see if it has one, just look up the model number online.
