Installing the Din radio Bracket

Note this Bracket requires the modification of the Plastic bezel that covers the radio and instrument cluster

this is the only mod that cannot be reversed without replacing the Bezel

the Bracket mounts using the OEM holes in the heater control and dash panal

the bezel can readily be had new from Dennis Carpenter if you feel the need to go back to a OEM radio

this bracket also moves the radio out far enough to clear the A/C duct so there is no need to Butcher it

for the radio to fit
