Forget my original thread about the OEM/Alpine radios. This is making me nuts. This morning I spoke to the owner of a stereo shop that told me I needed the two little brackets off of an OEM radio so I could mount the Metra box into the Monte dash. I went to the local yard and pulled them off of a factory Delco radio that was in a Cutlass. Easy right ? NOPE. Not for me. I put the two brackets on the plastic box and now its too wide to fit into the opening. Probably by at least 3/16". I assumed the Cutlass dash and the Monte/Malibu had to be close in dimensions where the radio mounts. I guess not. I have some of the textured plastic left over from the gauge mount that I made but to be honest I dont want to spend hours fabricating something if theres something already made to do what I need. For Monte owners, do the OEM radios have the same plastic bracket on the sides holding them into the dash ? Black plastic angles that are held on with a 10MM nut ? If not what do they have ? Are Cutlass radios held in with something different ? Did I wind up with the wrong stuff at the yard ? This is all thats left as far as the dash. I need to get it finished so I can move on. Anyone ? I dont want to use an OEM radio since I have these two Alpines.
