, I spent this evening cutting a aluminum piece to convert my single din kenwood to mount in dash , I am currently waiting on the rust-o-lum black hammer finish to dry , I used 8 black PC fan screws to mount it they work great in that plastic , it is like it is all one piece with the dash now

the audiovox had L brackets on the back of that panel that had nuts and clips that had to be popped out after you remove the brackets

4 of them , 2 on the sides and 2 on the bottom

then it sides out
