    I have used three different decks in mind. The Pionner 800PRS and 880PRS, they both work with no issues. The third one was the Eclipse CD7200MKII and it would NOT work, the door could not open far enough. With that be careful.

    Not much yet, got a pretty good sound system w/ my custom sub box. Plan on adding more lights & a tool box.
    My Pioneer DEH-P2600 fits fine. Yeah it's an older unit, but no problems. The face is a little over .5" thick and the volume knob pushes in pretty flush with the face. Mine is the scoshi. I'm guessing that you removed the little spacer so the unit is furthur out?
