Default car stereo?'s

I have an aftermarket deck in my car. My Dads factory stereo is getting old. I know what I want to put in, But I dont know what kind of install kit ot get? I searched for mine in order to find the pocket.

What do you guys have installed? The deck is not important, it is the install

here is mine:

I currently have an Alpine 9853, glide touch...controls the iPod, but it isnt highspeed. So, I have to use the Alpine adapter to use the iPod. Here is a pic of my set up. I am going to put the deck in the for sale section. It is about a year old, CD player was used maybe once, mainly used for iPod control.
I am gng to get the Alpine X001. Really sweet, plus It can change to red illumination to match the dash lights in the car.

I have a FC rx-7 cubby in mine. I ordered a kit but the damn thing came in about 15 pieces and the instructions didn't match anything I had and looked horrible. The rx-7 part looks good and fits well. The old stereo that was in it was rigged and had a metal cage that I was able to reuse to mount the stereo itself. Not sure if that was part of the factory stereo or not. The rx-7 cubby's part number is listed somewhere on miata.net.

I have that alpine in my 240, but is there a metal cage that goes in the miata? (my 240 had one) because mine had been busted into before i bought it so my plasctic fascia has the holes broken out of it and nowhere for me to mount my pioneer so its sitting in the hole chillin.

I would like a pocket, But I also like the gauges! What kind of boost gauge is that?

LIke I said in the post, The stereo is not important only the mounting kit. Is yours a custom kit? who makes it?

The gauges are warner stevens gauges. The SS surround is from rspeed.net. It is a simple bolt on for the 90-93, maybe 94, but I had to modify the mounting points for it to fit my 96. Paid like 60-70 dollars for it. Looks good, and really simple to intall.

anyone else have pictures of stereo's in the car?

I cant find the gauges or the R-speed stereo kit?

I got an install kit but it does not have a pocket and is the cheap plastic, I don't want to use it if I don't have to.
