How to I fill in the gaps after installing new car stereo?


Recommended Posts

Hi - after a year of pondering what to buy (after I could no longer use the original radio after I lost the security pin) I bought a new car stereo with Mp3 player today from Jaycar Electronics and fitted it myself only trouble is the 2cm gaps to the top and bottom of it!. Any ideas how I source the right kit to fill this in? Thx

Are you willing to pat with it. I am working on ways of reading a lost PIN from the head units, something that will be a cheaper and easier option than going to the dealers :)

If your camry has a double din audio unit, and you want to install a smaller single din unit, go to your wrecker and look for a car with a single din unit and retrieve the facia and the accompanying storage pocket: This recently cost me $11 from a wrecker in Brisbane and about 15 minutes to get the cradle, storage tray (pocket) and the stereo wiring loom for good measure.

This link has good instructions for how the stereo head unit is mounted:
