Hello...
I must say that I am at the moment so nervous about all those things around my fascia and my new 2din radio.
Reason is for sure in my nescience, not knowing much about installing radios in car. So need some advice.

I bought this fascia: Radio Fascia for HONDA Civic CD Panel Double Din Stereo Install Facia Plate Trim | eBay

I bought this radio: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Car/AppRadio/AppRadio+3+(SPH-DA110)

Ordered stalk and patch lead already from CONNECTS2.

PROBLEM:
At the moment I didnt put out my OEM radio so I dont know what is inside. I saw that metal cage from radio cant go through my fascia. Plastic surrounding from radio is also attached to that cage. So both are then useless.
Radio normally goes through fascia and small surrounding plastic which came with fascia preventing to go out (so this is good, but like I said without OEM surrounding plastic from radio which is attached on metal cage).

With fascia came 2 plastic profiles. There is mark on them L (left) and R (right).

So my big question is: will those 2 profiles will be enough to fit my radio strong enough, and is there somewhere place in my car where to screw them together with radio and car. So that will be without metal cage.

Simple - I dont know if I could fit my radio only with those 2 plastic profiles and without OEM metal cage...

Those plastic profiles I see also on that fascia from UK seller:


Honda CIVIC Car CD Stereo Double Din Fascia Surround Panel CT23HD11 | eBay

Some advice please before I put out my OEM radio and see that I cant fit my radio without metal cage....

The standard Pioneer cage is too big so throw it away and mount the headunit direct onto those two brackets that screw into the back of the fascia.

If you want to use a cage, you have to buy a 103mm high one.

You want to say that only 3 screws on each side who hold those plastic brackets will hold all that weight of 2din radio. Hope that there is something inside the dash to support it.
Thanks!

Yep, those screws have been holding mine for about a year. Wouldn't worry too much, it's difficult bolting the headunit down with all the wires underneath.
