One of the audio shops in town said it was possible, and pointed me towards a kit, but I ended up putting the double din in another vehicle. I will ask the shop when I see them later this week.

There are not kits to install a double din. Also the single din kit can't be modded to fit a double din, there is a big circuit board in the back that can't be removed since its part of the buttons, and takes up to much space for a double DIN. Although people have put 7" monitors in the cubby box below the radio. Its a lot of custom work and with anything like that requires experience for it to be done correctly and look good.

Part of what buttons? The climate control buttons?

Yeah its for the climate controls and goes from the bottom buttons up to just below the hole for the radio. HERE is a link to the kit I am talkin about, it goes from above the radio hole then from one **** to the other. I don't think it would be worth the modifcation to squeeze a double DIN in there. I have a 7" flip out, the only problem is it blocks half of each ****.

EDIT: Now you should be able to see the link better, it was always there though

it is very possible but at the same time very difficult to mod

ORIGINAL: Tryanosaur

Can you send me a link to that kit that you used and/or show a picture of what you did? I went to crutch field and couldn't' find anything that showed a kit that allowed for an in-dash double din sized unit. Only din sized which would only allow the mechanical, pop-out screen unit.
This kit he is talking about is the same single DIN kit I linked above. There is no double DIN kit available for the 7th gen accord, it just doesn't exist. If you want a double DIN unit your going to have to custom build it into the dash or the cubby below the radio.
