Help - Change Headunit from Stock to Double Din

I have an FN2 Type R and want to upgrade the audio system to a Pioneer AVIC-HD3!

Problem: I live in Australia and Honda only imports this one spec FN2.

Can anyone please advise me of the Part No.#'s to make this change (Facia Panel etc...)?
I have contacted 4 spare parts/dealers in the UK and still have had no luck!

The pics below illistrates what I am trying to achieve (From - To):

Changing the head unit - Civinfo Wiki

Some info there including part numbers for facia and pocket. As you will note, the existing stereo cannot be removed from the car, it has to be wired up to sit hidden somewhere like the glove box etc.

XCGuard - Thanks for the details - much appreciated.
My friend in the UK ordered it today for me!
Can wait to install the AVIC!
Now have to work out how to intergrate the radio station readout on the dash and get the steering wheel controls to talk to the headunit. I know one of the installs on this site has been successfull so shouldnt be too hard.

illegalhunter - I've been saving for this unit/system for a year now. Im also installing 2 X JL Audio 12W7 Subs in custom box under back seats (Need the boot space & want to be able to remove for track days). Havn't decided on other speakers and amps yet. I guess Ill have to make a decision on that soon.
