It has to be custom made. One person does this. For the tune of $1,200 I believe.

Only a Metra kit and single-DIN HU will work up top, everything else is custom or cubby mounted.

Search next time please.

Check the later years? I think the factory stereo plays WMA & MP3, at least by 2007. My 2007 Civic plays them, so I bet the Accord would too.

Don't know about the 8th gen, but the 06-07 does not support MP3s or WMAs. As finch said, there is no double DIN kit for the 7th gen. If you want an indash, a flip out is your only option.

That would be best done with the OEM unit. That's exactly what someone has done. It took a lot of work, and requires skill and talent to make it look good.

Brandon what forum was it that guy had his build log on?

If you search for a 7th gen accord with a double din you will come across it, there are only a handful of installs, if that. Unless your an expert with bondo, prepping plastic for paint, and actually painting well with rattle can just forget about it.

I honestly have no clue, you showed me the link. Haha, either way... I don't see this happening.

Nope, definitely wasn't me I don't go on any other car related forums. But yeah, if you have to ask, your not up to par to pull this off.
