FYI, I thought I would add some pics of my Dash, as it is right now, to give you all an understanding of what I'm working with.

I still say aftermarket will be cheapest and easiest even if you have to run every wire yourself. Head unit, dash kit and wiring harness adapter and done.

If I get a Nissan HU I can skip the harness adapter and dash kit.
Right now my PnP is having a $10 stereo sale and speakers $5 each. I think I'll go check thing out tomorrow, to see what's available and report back soon.

i tried to do this. after 97 they changed all the radios to a different plug and i think after 95 in the pathy too.

i wanted a factory looking cd changeer cause im old AF. turns out it wasnt worth de-pinning everything an repinning it so i left my JVC in. *shrug*

remember nissan uses a screw-on bracket on each side. not like a honda where it uses that cage where you bend the tabs and it acts as a sleeve for the receiver.

Square dash so if expect 86.5-92 to work and fit without a dash kit.

Here is an idea of what I'm lookin at doing.
Below is a pic of My Corolla Bezel

This is MY D21

This is the old Bezel from my "Rolla, and what I plan on doing with it. the top if the bezel fits inside of the Nissan with a small ( 1/16th" ) gap all the way around.

IDK what I'm going to do with the existing holes in the Yota bezel, but I'm sure a Dremel will be involved.

EDIT : I also have a HU from a Scion TC ( same basic shape of the one pictured in the 1st pic, but different face)that I'm thinking of splicing into the stock Nissan Stereo harness. I already have the wiring color coded to match The Yota to the Nissan.

I got this stereo from Amazon, it has modern features but a nice old school clean look. No extraneous bells and whistles.

I like the looks of that Unit. But I want CD capabilities too
