Upgrade stock 1din radio into 2din, how exactly?


Greetings from Holland, we purchased recently a 2006 Nissan Micra K12 with a stock 1 din radio which has a little storage box with hath just above the stock radio.

Now we wish to mount a 2 din aftermarket radio instead of the stock radio, it seems to me this should fix if the box on top was gone.
I removed the radio today (which was easy) to take a look and noticed that i cannot simply remove the storage box, when i do i have 2 separate 1 din slots instead of 1 2din slot, also i have a gab on top because it is rounded.

So my question is:
How do i fit a standard 2 din aftermarket radio into the original fascia/trim?
I saw some nice photo's via google where 2 din radios are fitted i a K12, but i cannot discover how they did this...

When i search for a replacement 2din trim i simply cannot find anything.

Can someone tell me how to do this, maybe where to buy this (i am not in the UK) from, how is it called etc..

A second question is related to the radio:
Does anyone know if the K12 has an active(amplified) or passive(not amplified) antenna system?
I which to use DAB+ (works great over here) as radio but use the original roof antenna for the best reception using a splitter for fm/dab, this only seems to work if the antenna is passive (no amplifier), but this info i also cannot find....

Thx for any hints or tips how to fix/find this!

Scrapyard. I think some k12 did have a double din from factory.
Yes, like 2006 Micra 160SR of mine! ;)

Thx, but simply nowhere available.

I called a lot of them today but none of them had it on stock.
Called even the Nissan dealer for a new one, they could not give me any details because they could not find it in there system. using my own vin number they simply only found the 1 din version for 2din i needed a vin number where the frame came stock.
