Basically you need to buzz off the tabs along the top and bottom, it's covered in this "How-To":

Since most places like Crutchfield says that a double-din unit will not fit..anyone know how deep a unit can actually be? Or will like all double-din units fit back there?

Thanks!

My trim ring off my Schosche kit doesn't fit right either. It doesn't really bother me much though.
