Not sure if anyone will know the answer to this but here goes.... I've got an r reg 1.8 55d escort van, when I wanted to use my old car stereo from my honda civic in this van I had to buy one of those fascia adapter things that blank of the space left underneath the single din stereo but those adapters are crap and break easily and mine broke and the stereo never stayed in place securely so couldnt wait to buy a double din stereo so that I wouldnt have to piss about with adapters to secure it.
My fathers day present from the mrs and kids was a double din stereo from ebay (brand new in box), well chuffed but went to fit it in the van the other day and found it was the right size in width but not in height
I think im gonna have to cut away the plastic strip that runs across the middle of the double din opening in the dash to get the stereo in, that's not much of a problem, its an old van so doesn't matter really, the problem is - I need to get a cage/fitting kit of some sort so that it fits in neatly, and secures the whole stereo somehow from within the inside of the dash.
Anyone suggest any ideas, maybe someone has done this before and knows what kit I need or suggest a way of bodging it in there that will work just as well?
