Vehicle audio Car Vehicle Center console Multimedia I know someone here can direct me to where I can find a 'quality', install kit for my new head unit! The one I ordered for my new JVC, has a pocket, and in general just looks like crap!
Its warped, flimsy and just plain cheap lookin', somebody save me before I am forced to fab something else!

I just put mine in yesterday...i'll put up a pic in a sec

Normally I would defend my hu, but I'm more mature than before. Unless you are gonna supply me with a better one, then you know what you can do.(don't know where that came from)
Its out of my 626, until i decide to get another amp and the harness for the OEM one. I'd rather get a set of HIDs(wink) then get that other stuff when i don't need it.



BTW the board isn't resizing that big a$$ pic, and i hate side scrolling

Gears are turning!

I am now working on a plan to fab a ''centered'' mount kit, I will try to utilize the factory stereo mounting brackets, ..like they say. 'If ya want something done right, do it yourself!' Electronics Technology Electronic device Computer cooling

I think that picture is bigger than the stereo that actually comes out of the car....

Did you try checking the manufacturer of the install kit to see if they offered another style. The local stereo shop around here only stocks the kits with the pocket but for most cars they can special order kits without.

NO, I really didn't like the quality of this brand of kit. The thing is not thick enough, it is very warped and cheap looking. I will try to find another mfg. but I may end up just fabing something myself!

I am also still trying to downsize my photos so they don't take up the whole page!
