    Plastic adaptor for after market car radio

    Filled the gaping hole in the dashboard to allow a smaller than OEM radio to be installed. Many extra plastic parts (for other vehicle options). Instructions were terrible. No pictures for the Oldsmobile I was mounting this into. Ended up buying some additional generic brackets to stabilize the radio....looks good after everything is mounted...but I had to improvise a bit to make things fit. Only reason I would recommend this to a friend is because I don't know what else you would use to dress the radio out in the dash.

    i purchased this mounting hardware for my van, after like an hour maybe 2 of trying to read the instructions we finally worked out a way to get it in. i dont recommend getting this kit unless you plan on fiddling with it . these are literally the worst instructions ive ever read, and all the plastic felt super cheap. i believe scosche has another one, and is rated much better than this.

    I bought this to install an aftermarket radio in my 2000 GMC Sierra. It had multiple applications and this was one of them. I could not get it to work. It also came with a bunch of pieces, to accommodate all the applications. Too confusing, too many parts, and it ultimately did not work out, I bought a more specific one from another company and it did the trick.

    I had bought this kit to put into my 1985 Camaro z28. First off, just so others know, it only comes with the dash kit, no wire harness or antenna adapters, just so no one gets confused by the huge package. But I was very pleased with how nicely and easily I was able to install this on my own and not need crazy adapters and plates.

    I am by no means an expert in car radio installation but figured this would make it much easier to do. Boy was I wrong. Gave up until my son can help me with this. He is my car radio guy. He will know whether something is wrong with this or I am just a complete idiot when it comes to this.

    Doesn't fit

    I have a 2000 Pontiac trans am, a gm product. Falls within the year guideline for which this is supposed to fit. It's aftermarket, it probably fits for other cars (mines on there) but I tried every bracket and adapter piece to get it to fit... never did. I saw where it would fit in another vehicle i own, probably would work there.

    Good kit overall and fit in my vehicle as expected. Instructions are a bit vague and I had to modify the pieces I needed for installation which added to my installation time but overall it wasn’t terrible.

    Lousy instructions

    It may be too much to ask for specific instructions for each model of car but basically I had to figure it for myself. The only reason I would recommend it to a friend is that there is no other choice. If a person isn't mechanically/electrically inclined and persistent I'd say have it installed by a professional.

    The instructions are worthless. This fits a slew of GM vehicles so it might be a good purchase for the odd ball GM vehicle. I ended up returning this kit and going back to the install bay and purchasing one of the pre-made vehicle specific dash kits for my GMC Suburban

    It would have been perfect for what we needed but we found out the one we had was just loose so we were able to return it very easily and when we went to purchase it everyone was very helpful and went out of the way for us we also bought a car stereo at the same time

    I'd prefer a kit with a storage pocket below instead of just being in the center. Doesn't fit perfect when you assemble it together and I broke off one of the tab inserts pretty easy. Once I put it all together and put my dash back on you couldn't tell it has faults.

    Worthless Directions

    I bought this for my 1993 Chevrolet Corsica 3.1L. The instructions that came in the package was not useful in any way. With all of the tiny pieces that come with it, I gave up mid-way. All I gotta say to anyone that is going to attempt this, good luck.

    Difficult instructions to follow

    The kit was most difficult because there are so many options. It was hard to figure out which pieces to use in the install. The directions were not clear, but we had also never installed a non factory radio before.

    The kit was a little confusing. The instructions that came with it were fairly worthless. It has such a wide variety that includes lots of extra parts. They could have made a better way to label them.

    Good for most beginner installers Directions aren't the best so you have to do a lot of figuring out yourselfOnce you figure out the directions is very easy
