i bought some self taping cap head screws at a hobby shop.

basically what used to be behind there was the pocket that comes with the radio dash kits. i cut the back of the pocket off so it was open for wires and i used the front thick plastic to run the screws in.

Good looking out Bob!

Sorry Jacob, I tried searching for Wowaks thread but it was burried deep, and I thought it was in General section not snapshots. I can see easily why you did not come up with it. Bob is like friggin proffesor X, you ask a question and if he doesn't immediately know the answer he'll just go hook up Cerebro and BAM!

Same thing just a bit plainer. My dual din adaptor only came with a flat plate. There was room for many switches but damn behind that bezel is a mess of wires, taps, and connectors. I dread hooking up the third switch. I don't know if I want that one for my remote switch to cut off the amp to my sub or if I wanna do a brake light kill switch for when I'm stealth wheeling in the game lands.
