Or cant you just go and get a double din surround - go to a wreckers and see - or even go to ford!! but fairlanes and fairmonts came with both im pretty sure!!! Or as some others have said just hack and cut the shelf out!!

Fairmonts and Fairlanes didn't, unless optioned with the Premium sound system, (and I don't know if they were even able to be optioned in this way, except maybe the Fairlane Concorde)

Fairmont Ghia's and LTD's all had this surround.

easiest way to mod your existing surround is by using a soldering iron! just go nice and slow, and you should come out with a nice, smooth edge! takes a bit of time, but looks good in the finish!

I just picked one up from a wrecker today for $45. Gave it a scrub and it's just like new. I contemplated cutting the orig one up, but it's so much easier to get one all ready to go. Genuine Ford quoted $126. (I'm mounting my UHF radio below). Not sure if you know, but they all changed to the EL style. ciggie lighter outside the ashtray. They fit just the same.

I got one a couple of months ago for $90.00.
I found with mine, the box labeled 'laser cut', that Ford get a single and laser cut the bastard into a double anyway.
