Finish is a little different than stock but I can live with it. Fit is off just a tad, the top left has a bit of a gap but I think I can readjust.

DIN 2 radio upgrade of a C5 Corvette a snap.

Crutchfield customer from West Hartford, CT on 4/12/2019

2004 Chevrolet Corvette

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Fits great - almost like the original except for one little thing. It does not come with the covers for the ash tray and cup holder like the original bezel. Also, it does NOT even give you any directions for moving these covers (if they fit) from the original to the new bezel. All and all, it makes switching from a DIN 1 to a DIN 2 radio a snap.

Pros:

Cons: NO ash tray and / or cup holder covers

Buy something else

2000 Chevrolet Corvette

If the product didn't cost as much as it did, I'd probably be a little more lenient on the review. However, at the price I paid, I am not happy with the product. It does not fit flush on the passenger side. It is a few mm off and shows the metal behind it. It's the worst at the top Right corner where it sticks out almost a cm. I'd expect this from some cheap foreign thing off an auction website, but not for something I paid for at this price point.

Pros:

Cons:

Fit was just as good as the factory for most part seemed little shorter. Only major complaint was the matte black instead of the factory gloss interior parts. The install was time consuming due to having to remove the climate control brackets by cutting them out.

Pros: Aftermarket Benefits Bluetooth

Cons: Price Color

After installing this dash kit I loss my covered ashtray (cover does not fit) and the fitment is a little off. I have a gap on the r/s upper console. It appears that the clips does not lock. Given the price paid it is too expensive.

very close to OEM.

Would've preferred a cup holder with a cover like the original. Could be used to store change. Other than than, it makes the radio look like a factory installation.

Pros: perfect fit

Cons: missing cup holder cover.

Fairly good fit. Passable match to existing dash panel.

Pros: Gets the job done. You may be able to purchase a different one by November if you search.

Cons: Don't like the doorless cup holder or the doorless area where the ashtray used to be.

Metra DP-3021B Dash Kit

Crutchfield customer from Grand Rapids, MI on 9/10/2017

1999 Chevrolet Corvette

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This kit made it easy to install my new radio. Be aware you'll have to cut support brackets in car to fit everything. The finish looks slightly different than what came out, but matches very well and could just be the fact that the old one isn't brand new. Also be aware the cup holder and ash tray cover area slightly different than stock.

Pros:

Cons:

Dash used on 2002 Corvette Z06

Fujikoma from Columbia, SC on 7/25/2017

2002 Chevrolet Corvette

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Did not realize that Crutchfield sold this at the time I bought my radio from them, but I wanted to leave a review showing what it looked like and what to be aware of. Would recommend a right angle drill and a grinder for removal of the stock brackets. The pop rivets are a pain (and well engineered) to get at and I'd also recommend being careful not to bend the side wall that butts up against the dash. It fits pretty well, but I have a small gap at the top and a little bit of a bulge on the passenger side wall. Will try to fix when I remove for re-wiring and replacing the Bose speakers at a later date. Would recommend a USB adapter for the cigarette lighter if you have a radio with a rear USB connector and don't smoke. Climate control is flush with the dash. Straight on picture shows the off angle gap... that is the placement of the dash, as the radio is centered in the stock frame like it should be. Had to drill larger holes for the plastic pins on the climate control box... the instructions state to drill a 1/8" hole, but the plastic pins on my unit were about twice as large. The alignment bracket is accurate, but the holes were too small. The stick shift will make climate control adjustments a little more difficult than the stock placement because the box is slightly lower. Overall, it looks good and the gap is hardly noticeable.

Pros: Good replacement. Consistent color. Easy to install (bracket removal being the exception). Manual stick cover fits well. Air sensor and ignition switch fit well. Sturdy brackets for radio. Extra screws.

Cons: Some gap between double DIN radio and cut out for the radio (see picture). Cup holder and change bin different than stock (no flip cover). No hole for 7mm screw for change bin.

Are the cupholder and storage area doors done away with?
[ Bobby  Jul 29, 2019 ]
5 answers
A
no
[ Jorge  Aug 09, 2019 ]
A
The cup holder is still there but instead of having a cover it remains open. It has a few rubber arms in it to hold the drink better than stock. The ash tray is replaced with just an opening that has no cover as well. You can put little things in it like the stereo remote.
[ James  Aug 01, 2019 ]
A
There is a smaller storage slot there but not a door. The cupholder remains and it works better than the original at actually holding a cup.
[ Charles  Jul 30, 2019 ]
A
Kinda! Down to one(1) cup holder and there is a small storage area.
[ John  Jul 29, 2019 ]
A
no, they are still there, but you have to transfer the hardware. cup holder is useless anyway!!
[ Glenn  Jul 29, 2019 ]
Q
Any issue with an automatic vs stick shift?
[ John  May 02, 2019 ]
6 answers
A
My car is a manual and had no problems. I think the auto's shifter is in the same place and should be fine as well.
[ James  May 02, 2019 ]
A
Put one in my 2001 Vette and had no issues. It is a automatic.
[ JOHN  May 02, 2019 ]
A
I have an automatic and this kit worked well. I had to play with it a little bit shifting from neutral to park to get things aligned well while initially putting it in place. Overall it was pretty straightforward to install even for for a person like myself that isn't extremely handy.
[ William  May 02, 2019 ]
A
None, the hole for the shifters is identical, even on the factory part.
[ Stephen  May 02, 2019 ]
A
My Z06 is manual and I had no issues
[ Peter  May 02, 2019 ]
A
Mine is auto. Worked fine
[ Darryl  May 02, 2019 ]
Q
Is this part paintable? My Corvette is the 50th Anniversary model with shale color interior.
[ John  Jun 28, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
The kit is already painted in the scratch-resistant black finish so, it is not made to accept new paint.
