Best adapters to go from 6x8's to 6.5" round?

Just like the title sates...wheres the best place to get adapters to go from the factory speakers to a 6.5" round speaker? Whats the best material? Is there a certain thickness I need?

Pics would be great if you have them.

best thing to do is trace the stock speaker mount onto 1/4 in mdf, then trace the 6.5 speaker mounting holes etc.. then cut it out and paint it black.. when i used to work at a speaker shop, thats what i had to do.. pretty simple

exactly what he above me said.. next thing to do is check your mounting dept.. make sure you can role your window down without hitting the back of the speaker. basically just check your fitment, which im sure you know this..lol
