the tool for the radio removal can be made.. coat hanger...

but if you want the actual tool, go to autozone and get one... lol there is no tool to get the annoying clips off.. its the pushpin kind have to pull hard to get the off there. and for the front doors its just 4 screws not hard at all. and i dont think they give you the adapter for the radio bezel.. i know mine didnt come with one.. just a heads up tho..

The tool for taking off the door panels is only $10 at the automotive stores so don't make that the end-all of your decision making.

The tool to remove the door panel deals can be found in the kitchen where the forks are put.

Just bend 2 of the prongs toward the outside and there you go

Or just go to the back of best buy and ask to borrow one.
but I made one, worked fine.

and sonicelectronix.com has by far the best prices overall, and will price match anything, so I recommend google shopping the model number and finding the cheapest price, then getting it from sonic.

+1 I got my system from there for under 300 bucks

Don't go to best buy. A friend of mine did ( i tried my best to talk him out of it). And his new system cost $500 and it was just some kenwood speakers and a sub with a foam surround.
