We are considering installing an aftermarket radio, not in the red GT, but our white GT. There are tons of choices of radios but I would like to see pics of what radio mounting kit you used. There are several possibilities with Scosche brand mounts. So please post pics and list the model radio install kit you used. Thanks

I used a kit from these guys on my '89 Bonneville. Quality parts, good instructions, reasonable prices.

http://www.installer.com/kits/

I don't have any pics right now, I'll try and get some tomorrow. The Bonne has the same type GM 1.5 DIN radio as Fiero does.

I was hoping to see some install pics. Some of the mounts have a open compartment below the radio. I was hoping one of these would work.

I used a mutlipurpose kit for the fiero that lets you flushmount the radio. You have to remove the metal tab at the back of the skeleton for the radio to fit though. It's rivited in to the plastic. Most kits for the fiero stick the radio out about an inch, you might have to ask around for this kit.

Skitime,

Here's a pic that shows (kinda) the headunit mount in my car. It's from American International, the brand sold here in Canada by Canadian Tire. Left over kit from an old Cavalier I had.

http://s21.photobucket.com/...current=DSC00002.jpg

The radio sticks out about an inch and also makes it near to impossible to properly mount the trim plate. It's about a $20 kit, and you get what you pay for I guess. I can take a closer pic if you'd like.

I'm planning on buying one from humount.com this winter to upgrade.

HTH

I've got one from humount.com as well. I love it! It is great. He made this one custom and will do it for anyone. It was done pretty quick and he sent me a picture before he shipped it so I knew what I was getting. Hook up is very simple and it looks sick.

Agrees with Yellowstone and TD37! The humount.com kit is proabably the best mounting piece I've ever seen or used. The best part about it is proabably the way it still looks like a factory mounting piece.

Here's a couple of pics of mine. Although they really don't do these things justice.

Just do 2 things.

Get a Flush Mount plate. Don't get the one that pushes the radio out, it looks really goofy and makes CD swaps a lot more difficult than it shoudl be.

2nd, buy a complete harness adapter, then carefully solder all the wires from the head unit to the adapter, then shrink tube all the connections. It makes radio install a 10min job rather than a 2hr job.

They're LEDs and they come with the faceplate. Just a matter of putting them to the power wire and viola...done!

I have looked into this faceplate before, and if i recall it says that you need to remove a stop in the back so that the radio can go back far enough, is this true? If so how hard is that to do, and what is recommended for the job. Also the plastic skeletal structure of my center counsil has some cracks and broken parts, i have looked through the boneyards and they are all in worse shape then what i have, so right now the only thing that holds my radio in is the trim piece arround the vents. Are the counsil skeletal structures sold anywhere? Could i just use the trim arround the vents to hold the flushmount radio plate in like its holding the aftermarket adapter that holds the radio in now? It makes me mad that the person that owned my car before me was careless with the radio install on a piece that is so hard to come by!! Thanks. To touch on what Capt Fiero said, he is very correct that it makes it harder to change CD's, and it does look kinda goofy, sorry i dont have any pics though.

I have removed that "clip, support" thing in the back on about 10 different Fiero's. Best way for me to get it done, is a long, 18" flat blade screw driver a hammer. You push the screw driver into the base of the clip with the handle well outside the radio pod and smack the handle with a hammer. Usually one or 2 good smacks and the rivets pop free.


It was only used to support the OEM style head units which are about twice the weight of a modern deck.

Hahaha, I was wondering if I did the right thing by taking it out "by force and God's wraith". Thanks for reassuring me of that.

hmm....Thats what I figured, but I took my car to a stereo install shop anyways.

Great, so now I know I paid 60 bucks to have some guy knock out a little plastic piece. haha.

unique and different...I however feel that it would be awkward to use in the location, especially while driving (you also lose some of the precious storage space inside of the car). On a plus side - the low lifes would never expect it to be located there (unless they look there after breaking in).

Ok here is a suggestion for you Dave and one that will probably go best with your fussiness.
Modify an original non 88 face plate by plastic welding the stereo hole flush.
Then cut the right size hole in the new face plate. Maybe even a hole for an afternarket dash pocket as well.
Then smooth the new face plate with plastic filler and get it nice and flush.
Send the original 88 face plate (with dot matrix) to a photo imaging company that specialising in automotive stuff.
They will be able to match the dot matrix and photo-image the new modified piece as a dot matrix one that looks original.

You will then have an aftermarket stereo that looks like it is really meant to be there from the factory.

These guys in Australia do that type of work. I am sure others in the USA do to.

I have no idea how you guys are getting your HU's to fit flush! I'm hitting the duct work and a whole bunch of wires so I can't get my unit flush. I have a Apline 9820 CDA. I had it installed and the installer showed me all the stuff that was in the way. I'm at a loss....................

You need to take out the old radios rear support bracket to get the new unit to sit flush. I is held in by two rivets. Just pop them out and you will be set.

TD37, How close is the brushed steel Humount in person to the "brushed steel" design of the Fiero HVAC surround?
In the pictures (with the flash) it looks totally different. - Is it the same in person?

Are the counsil skeletal structures sold anywhere? Could i just use the trim arround the vents to hold the flushmount radio plate in like its holding the aftermarket adapter that holds the radio in now? It makes me mad that the person that owned my car before me was careless with the radio install on a piece that is so hard to come by!! Thanks.


The console skeleton is notorious for cracking. As far as I know, nobody makes a replacement. I wish they did. I'd buy one or two and I don't even own a Fiero currently. It's tough to find one in decent shape although they're out there. Don't be mad at the previous owner. These things just become brittle over time. I've had 4 Fieros and all of them had a center skeleton in less than perfect condition. As a matter of fact, I've broken a few myself and I'm very gentle on cars.

As far as using the trim panel to mount the stereo...I kind of doubt it. It's not really that strong. You would have to plastic weld a piece in place to fit the aftermarket stereo which would make it that much weaker.

TD37, which Pioneer stereo do you have?

I think we have a pretty similar model. (can't tell exactly from the pics.)
