Hi
I removed the factory head unit, and to get through the anti-theift screws i drilled them out, this has caused damage to the little gold clips that have the thread in them, does anybody know what i could replace them with???
Thanks guys

Hey thanks guys, went to the wreakers and grabbed some.
Now I have installed my Head unit, its a Pioneer DEH-P3950MP.
I have put it in but i cant use the brackets from the stock radio cause its a too tighter fit, so i used the provided cradel. The problem is it was to lose to i fitted one bracket in, but i couldnt find anyway of making it hard to remove, it could be removed right now with no trouble. Does anybody know how to fix this????

Thanks guys

those original brackets can be used drill the little bump on the brakets out so it smooth , find where ya want ya head unit to sit and see if any of the mounting locatios on the head unit line up with the braket holes, you may have to drill the small holes on the brakets out a bit to use the origanal mounting screws but it all works just got to modify lol

personally i made copies of the original brackets of aluminium.

just got dimensions from the originals, bend it up on the pan break at school (back in the good old days!! lol) and voila!

has worked a treat for the last 3 years.

delacaa...you don't need that steel cradle that pioneer have with their head unit. Just use the stock brackets, drill some holes in them so that you can screw the bracket onto the head unit. then just slide it in.

The little border piece should be held in by the head unit itself and not via the cradle. The border piece is actually there to hide the cradle (since the steel cradle is visible from the front). You should still be able to fit the plastic border on without the cradle.
