    No problem dropping player into the niche but when installing ac panel, opening for the player is too small, by about an inch and wont fit. pictures should be here

    On the side of the stock stereo, there are the stock mounting brackets held on with 4 screws.... take those off and use on the pioneer deck... as for the gap, go buy a pocket kit to cover the gap after you put it in...

    there are no problems mounting aftermarket player in the dashboard but opening in the ac panel is too small and covers part of the cd player. Seems that I would need to cut out a bigger hole in the panel, and i know that eventually will be selling the car need to try make it reversible.

    Tragically Pioneer didn't think when they made this deck (something I'm noticing that a lot of the mechless stereo's have one annoying flaw, most aren't this bad), they forgot the double din Japanese install market in that the stereo is held in with the side tabs. This stereo is designed around being installed with metal cage and slid into the dash, not like our stereo's mount using the factory brackets and having the trim slid over top...

    Tragically I can't see of a way to mount this stereo with out modding the cover trim... I've seen another member install this stereo but I believe he had to mod the trim and also kinda rig up the mounting cage over using the factory stereo brackets..

    if anyone has resized their original panel please let me know and drop a picture of your set up. Otherwise my plan will be to extend cut out and get a spare ac panel from ebay. Thanks for looking
