Finished Install.
I install a pioneer NEX2500 unit. It is just a millimeter to large for the faceplate kit, but still works just fine.

Cut out as per the Instructions. Die grinder wouldve been super handy. I used a plastic welder.
Note....it still didnt fit by following the I structions

Finally got for up, and decided to cut out the top area inside the radio cubby hole.
Honestly believe, ignore the instructions...and cut the top out first.

Radio kept hitting this metal piece.
Local audio shop said they cut that out to make radios for, even on newer vehicles. Which, is insane..that is a structural member.
So
.cut out the top area above the radio, radio can then tilt the 1/8" it needs to be picked up over the metal bracket.
Which also tells me, you can probably leave all the lower plastic in place

Up close shot of the faceplate that allows it to work.
I'm perfectly happy with how it fit the contours of the stock dash trim.
And 100x's easier than trying to plastic weld/or use bondo to allow a double din to work, like used to be done before there was this kit

I just my double din in with that kit a few days ago. I actually wrote a very opinionated e-mail/review to the company about how much more plastic actually has to be removed like the upper portion. Just glad I'm not the only one with that problem.
