Cool 97 Ex: No ISO mounting points for the radio? **PICS**

97 Ex

The car came with an old Sony CD player and it was all half assed. It wasnt mounted and they taped the red and yellow cables together lol.

I took the console apart and saw no mounting holes for the radio. My 99 Civic has them and I bolted the radio to the mounting points so it doesnt move and to help against theft.
How would I do this on the Accord? I see a few aftermarket kits but which have the holes to mount the CD player?

If you could link me to the kit you are currently using that would be great!

Quality install! No wonder the they pulled the radio fuse, the red and yellow are connected together. SMH.

Take a picture of where the radio goes.
Mine came with nothing at all and I came up with a solution that was a bit of PITA but not too bad.

the factory radio needs to secure to something. even if it slides in and catches on clips.

it says to mount the rear support bracket to the rear of the opening with two bolts.

Thats the exact kit I got from Crutchfield.com lol.

I installed it today and everything came out great! Fitment is 8/10 but im not complaining. At least now my radio is secured and a lot harder to steal. I used the DIN mountain brackets and now it doesnt move one bit, it is also wired up correctly so it works like it should. I cant wait to wire up a nice 10" or 12" in the trunk.

Photobucket is being gay with hosting so let me figure out a way to host the pics.

I ripped out that early 2000s Sony radio and slapped on my trusty Kenwood.


BEFORE: USING THE OEM POCKET AND NOT BEING HELD ON BY ANYTHING


AFTER: PROPERLY MOUNTED WITH THE KIT
