Start by cutting the double din size on the stock trim, then cut some plastic ( acrylic or Plexiglas) to fill in the extra wide of the factory size, use crazy glue to secure it in place and then use some epoxy on the back to reinforce the patch, smooth everything up with Bondo body filler sand everything smooth and paint as you want.
That's how i did mine

That looks really nice. Would you be interested in making another one early next year?

see it wasn't that hard, good job
no i didn't use the sleeve i used 2 L brackets on the radio mounting points using the screws that come with it, i had to adjust the holes for a perfect fit but it wasn't that bad ( make sure the brackets are at least 1 inch wide to allow adjustment) , also had to cut some of the plastic inside the dash and the back of the radio is now standing on it so no need for tight fixation in the front
