    So i took the truck to get a double din system installed ( which i now regret and am going to go back and put stock radio in tomorrow) and the stupid guy scatched the crap out of the ac surround. It is suppossed to be gray but it now has a couple of black scratches from where the paint was. Does anyone know of any remedies besides spray paint.

    Also, next time try installing yourself, this truck is a complete joke on how easy it is with the proper hardware. Get the wiring harness that plugs right in (wire to deck, hook to factory setup). 4 bolts, antenna, and I think one other wire and you're done. Unfortunately, having someone else do it they probably skipped the harness and butchered the stock harness, especially if they didn't care about the surrounding bezel :/

    Why do you regret going with the double din?

    What was so bad about the double din that makes you want to go back to stock? Try putting it up in the For Sale section, there's always people looking for a new stereo.
