So I went and spent some $$ one the EtchUS kit to relocate the AC controls so there is room for a double din.
https://etchus.com/collections/caprice-and-impala-ss/products/double-din-radio-kit

I ordered this head unit

as it hit my price point with the features I wanted.

So is there a set of readily avail connectors to snap into the factory ones when I pull out the ole cassette deck, or am I going to have rewire by hand (not super hard, but I'm lazy lol).

Yes. You can get them pretty much anywhere. Autozone, Advance, NAPA, Wal Mart, etc.

Plug it into your factory connector, connect the wires to the new radio harness and plug it into the radio.

So almost a year later, my lazy ass got this thing going. It'll be ready for WF next month (at least the stereo). The Etch US kit has a new faceplate and it replaces the woodgrain insert surround on the stock radio area.

Looking for a woodgrain vinyl wrap to match or close to the original interior (LT1) woodgrain. Short of that or SEM texture spray, what other ideas you guys have? I don't want to rewrap all the door inserts to match...
