Sony XAV-AX5000 in 2013 and down Road Glide

Since the Sony Xav-Ax5000 is technically a single din stereo with double din display, has anyone installed it in the older Road Glides similar to how people install the flip outs? Technically it can be done but just wanting to know if anyone has done it. Looked into modifying inner fairing with that double din adapter but went against it since it would require new paint and a bunch molding just to get a new stereo.

Well I went ahead and bought the adapter and installed it myself versus paying custom shop.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

I would also like to see the finished product. Looks like a nice job. I may have to try this since my inner needs repainted . Do mods like this keeps me from buying a new glide and it's soo much cheaper.

Did you have to cut the oem inner or does this just mold over the original ?
