Double DIN Dash Kit?

Hello fellow Ford Owners!

I'm new to these forums, about 10 months ago I picked up a 2008 Lincoln Navigator with 28,XXX miles on it. It had practically whatever I wanted except navigation.

This weekend I installed a new headunit which has navigation. It is a Pioneer X710-BT. It replaced the factory 6-disk CD changer. I had to cut the bezel to make it fit:

I cut the small bar at the top. I mounted the headunit using the mounting brackets from the stock headunit, and this is how it lines up:

The top and the sides are flush with the bezel, however there is a 1/2" gap at the bottom. Anybody know which dash trim kit that will be compatible with this?

All help is very much appreciated!

The only kits I've seen for Navigators are ones that already have factory navigation. The radio bezel surround is different with factory navigation, the opening is bigger. You could try one of those kits and just trim some more of your bezel opening, or buy a whole new radio bezel = $$$$

Here is an example of the kit:

Check with online junkyard, I was going to do the same exact project and i was able to find the part for 150. Another option is to just glass in that section and then repaint the panel

Thanks for the help guys. Unfortunately, the OEM Navigator navigation bezel is nearly impossible to find. I'm most probably going to have someone fiberglass and paint it for me, as I have no skill with fiberglassing.
