That should be all you need to make it fit. The Panasonic deck should have most of it already there. That is as long as the Panasonic isn't just dropped in there without any mounts. Might be a slight bit of changing though. Most notably the locking sleeve for your Nakamishi will likely have to be used to get the deck to lock into the slot properly, but that is a simple thing to change.

I love the sound quality and general product quality of the Nakamichi's. The only thing I don't like is the plain jane look.

That's why I always go with Eclipse. They look absolutely beautiful, and anti-theft on them is great.

Any way good luck with your new deck. :)

Zombiepup which Eclipse are you using? I have a model 55430 head unit with an Eclipse 6disc changer in the back.

My latest setup was an Eclipse 8052 (8v preout, no onboard amp (required external power)), a Phoenix Gold 300.2 Tantrum amplifier pushing a pair of MB Quart 4" Coaxial speakers in the stock location in the dash (minor modification to make them fit). In the rear I had another Phoenix Gold 300.2 Tantrum amplifier pushing a pair of Phoenix Gold TX46.0 Coaxial (4X6) again in the stock pod location in the back (I upgraded the crossover for better sound from these speakers, I don't remember which one I used.) I used 3 JL Audio 8W3-D6's wired in parallel at 4 ohms, in a sealed enclosure at .38 cubic ft. airspace, powered by a JL Audio 500.1 amplifier for base. All power cables were Phoenix gold, and all the RCA's were Monster Cable.

I know this is more information than you asked for, but I figured that this way anyone who was interested could see what I was running.

Also note that I no longer have this set up as my car was stolen and trashed. So no pics are available.

That sucks. Sorry to hear that the car was stolen.

There are a substantial number of folks who have gotten to visit Jail from the inside for trying to steal my red Toad. So far I've been very lucky and no one has managed to get past the alarm system. It has however been pretty entertaining watching some of them try it.

Again, sorry to hear about your car.

what alarm system do you have?
Mine is a "crime guard" brand. Made by R&D. I have virtually all the "add-on" modules you can get with it except the remote start feature.

In my humble opinion, the real secret is get a dependable brand alarm and do some research first and make sure you get a brand system that isn't available in your local area. Makes it much more difficult to get past if the would be thief has never seen the system before. I had mine installed out of state and made sure I got a system that isn't even available here. The next most important thing is to never let anyone have access to your car without you being right there. That way they can't program a rogue control into your system.

One of the features of the crime guard I have that I most appreciate is that every time I start the car, it tells me how many remotes are programed to operate the system. If anyone manages to add a remote, I just reprogram immediately and their remote will no longer work.

Crime Guard is fairly expensive (why it isn't sold locally) but has paid for itself several times over.
