99 GT to 2002 Dash Conversion

Okay so my 99 mustang gt has the retarded split level radio and CD player,
I have replaced the Radio with an aftermarket CD player, and a pocket where the CD player went

now my friend has a 2002 GT and he put a touch screen in, it was a direct install because there wasnt a split level radio system

now i went to a shop that my friend owns and he even says to build a new dash piece its going to be 300-400$ PLUS the touch screen deck which is 500
i don't know if im weird for not wanting to pay that much for my radio but,

i was wondering if there was a site that sells these pieces pre made so that it can hold the touch screen, ill post pictures of what i mean

any help is appreciated.

below is the picture of my friends dash (dark picture with green background)
other picture is of what i need

Get some kydex bro... I build concealment holsters with the stuff. It's super easy to work with and if you mess up, just re-heat and repeat!

This is for a knife, but I'm sure you can come up with some ideas... I will be doing some interior work on my GT this winter using kydex.

Kydex is so cheap and easy to work with, it may be worth trying... Even if he fails, hes only in the hole 20 bucks or so.

The dash overlay is actually the least of your worries in a sense. It is the actual frame underneath that follows the the overlay covering it. That would need to be altered to if you are trying to put in a double-DIN reciever. Might turn in to quite the job. I don't have an advance knowledge in the year but I know what you dash looks like and I have been in and out of my dash several times, so I am just putting 2 and 2 together. Another issue would be fitments...or dash kits that would need to be used. Either way good luck bud!
