Double DIN fascia fixing by raistlin

My DD fascia plate is secured at the top but loose at the bottom. I've tried jamming thin strips along the side so that friction holds the fascia in place but it works loose quite quickly.

Any inspirational ideas please?

This isn't the actual fascia but you can see the problem, where the white label is at the bottom left of the fascia panel.

On mine that bottom edge keeps moving outward and I've tried to wedge it where the white label is on this one.

What about some mastic, just a small bead enough to stick it down and you could always get a razor blade in there should you need to remove it.

Thanks Andy.

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

Could you use velcro on the back in some way, so its easily removable?

Having had a closer look at your photograph Paul, looks like I am going to have to butcher my facia to get the unit to fit. :lol: Especially if I fit the finisher.

Cheers

Well after a good butchery session I got my facia to fit
Image
However the unit needs to be recessed into the curvature of the facia plate
Image
Can anyone suggest a way of recessing the unit into the facia?

Cheers

Is the HU stable and secure Mike?

If so - how did you do it?

Have yet to secure it Paul, my old single DIN has a screw in the back with a rubber bush, the Pioneer unit has something similar. There does seem to be a lack of securing points behind the dash.

I was thinking of fitting a light strap or even a block of fire proof polystyrene.
