VetteNuts C5 Corvette Double Din Radio Bezel
The radio bezels are currently out of stock and are expected back in stock in late April early May.
Yhey are being assembled and getting ready for boxing. It is a 4 week journey across the ocean.
I had failed to calculate the Chinese Holiday in mid Feburary which has pushed back our delivery dates..
Since there is a wait period we are offering them at $329 shipped.
We will keep you informed as we get updates on arrival times.
The delay for some will not be AS bad because there are inventory
issues with Pioneer and Kenwood.
This seems to be an issue with a lot of manufactureres in the auotomotive world
at this time given the Covid issues.

VetteNuts Double Din Radio Console for the C5 Corvette!
Our radio consoles are injection molded the same way GM made the originals, the texture or graining is stamped into the mold, not a spray-on added later. This insures a uniform product every time. Unlike others on the market, our console retains that factory GM look and feel while keeping the cigarette lighter door and cup holder lid intact. You DO NOT have to relocate your Ac Control. Our bezel comes complete, the only thing it does not come with is the 12v cigarette lighter,You will need to install yours into our bezel. They simply unscrew and will take a matter of seconds to transfer.
We could have cut corners and made a cheaper bezel, however we knew our C5's deserved a better product, and you know how VetteNuts feels about C5's. So the end result is the VetteNuts Double Din Bezel.
BY KEEPING THE THE 2 DOORS and THE CUP HOLDER RUBBER, THE MOLD COST INCREASED along with assembly. The large door has metal springs on each side, the same as they were from GM. All of these items add to cost because we had to make every single component and assemble them. We felt the bezel had to look OEM - like it came with the car.
- If you are using a head unit that the screen tilts down for Cd/DVD player. The opening for the radios is an exact fit, we see some tilting units where the screen will touch the sides of the bezel. This causes the screen to stop as soon as it detects any resistance. The cure is to file the edges of the bezel to allow more clearance. This in no way affects the bezel finish. This is 100% safe to do and 100's have been done this way.
- We have found that the two plastic tabs on the top of the bezel can cause an interferce when installing the radio. Due to the raising of the head unit upward. We reccomend cutting them off and this will not affect alighment or the bezel staying up against the dash. The screws are what holds it in place.
**There are modifications that will need to be done to the C5 to accept a new head unit. Please look at the picture above showing the areas of the cage that need to be trimmed. With our bezel we moved the radio up instead of down. You do not have to relocate your AC controler. So at the top of the opening for the radio there is an area where the dash hangs down in the way. This will need to be trimmed back flush. There is also two metal tabs at the rear of the cage up top. Those will need to be removed unless you are installing a radio w/o a CD/ DVD player. Some of these units are shorter and do not require the rear tabs to be removed. And as with any double din install the cross bar under the oem radio has to be removed. Do those 3 things and your new head unit will slide right in **
