Got a new stereo but the factory bracket won't fit it :/
Any way to avoid spending money or drilling holes to risk damage?
These f**k efs are such a pain in the a** with speakers and stereos :evil:

Hate to see you with another model car, EF's would have to be the easiest cars in the world to install speakers and head units.

+1 on that, dealt with commodore's, toyota's, suzuki's and honda's and ef/el's have to be easier.

H/Us all have similar dimensions...pretty sure there is a standard with multiple mounting holes on the units...if you have a cry fitting that, I think you're being spoon fed too much.

If it's any of the popular brands (Pioneer/Kenwood/JVC/etc) you should be able to drill 2 maybe 4 holes into the brackets in total to fit the unit into place.

Just a side note...measure TWICE drill/cut once. Make sure when you align it properly and far out enough so that you can fit the H/U surround in.
