It's not hard doing it yourself. Just get a kit for the CD player modify you dash so that it will securly hold the CD player and add a good backround to hide your cuts and bolts and drill holes.

Installing the CD is easy is pie. The ground wire, Power cluster, antenna wire, and speaker wire.

My question to you would be what kind of speakers to use, with not too many options in the interior? Maybe throw wome 6x9's in the allready present 4 inch speaker holes? just modify and drill new holes, and add the grate to cover the imperfections...

Crutchfield has a face plate for about $5.00 including installation instructions. Just put a DIN reciever in my 260. Piece of cake. Minor trimming around exiting radio cut-out.
