Anyone have previous experience that can tell me how to go about it? I have the instructions, but I remember reading about how the kit isn't all that. Perhaps because of the price, but I want to make sure I don't make a mistake that can be avoided.
Otherwise I will follow the instructions.
Cut the steel middle bar, cut two holes in bottom plastic and possibly cut one hole up top if my deck won't fit.
Just got done doing the install myself and I had to cut tho hole up top too. Pretty much what you said. Instructions are short, sweet and precise. I will try and post some pics for you tomorrow. And the only thing wrong that I found was the price. But actually, with all the time you save and the piece for the dash that comes with it, it kinda makes it worth it.
oh...sorry. Forgot the most important part. When you cut out the piece of dash that has the openings for the radio and ac unit, make sure to use something like a jigsaw. You need to leave some plastic there for glueing the new piece that comes with the kit (again in the instructions).
Good god you have to hack into the HVAC plenum?! I didn't have to do that for mine, well I didn't use the Detail Kit either, I have an AVIC-Z2 and I had plenty of room behind it when I made my bracket.
