Great fit for a first gen Chevy S10.

Crutchfield customer from Carrollton, GA on 6/12/2019

1984 Chevrolet S10

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Kit fits a 1984 Chevy S10 perfectly with the zero rise face plate on a Kenwood media player. The kit also comes with what looks like a 5/8" rise and a 1" rise faceplates so a CD player MAY fit with the 1" plate. I know they will not with the zero rise. Good quality and by using the side brackets that were on the factory radio to mount the new bracket in the install is very sturdy and no chance of the player sagging in the rear.

I love that Crutchfield includes adapters and mounting hardware with your order. Been using them since 1991 when the factory radio just doesn't cut it.

Missing mounting tabs

Ron from Linthicum, MD on 5/23/2018

1987 Buick Grand National

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I needed this kit to install a modern removable faceplate Alpine receiver into the dash of a 1987 Buick Regal Grand National. The kit came in a sealed bag, but didn't have any mounting tabs. I needed the tabs to attach to the sides of the kit to attach it to the dash. I don't know how the makers of this kit expected the kit to be mounted. I ended up finding some bits and pieces from some past installs of several other kits to complete the job. Keep in mind, this isn't my 1st install by far. I've been installing high complete stereo systems since the late 80's. This includes custom sub boxes, amp racks, crossovers and the old Alpine multidisc players, just to name a few. Extremely disappointed.

Perfect fit, and for a 30 year old car as well! This kit was by far the easiest part of the job. Would like to be able to offset the single din head unit towards the top or bottom versus only centered. (My car has a 1.5 DIN space for the head unit).

Pros: Perfect fit - just like factory. Simple to use.

Cons: Instructions were weak, poor graphics. But one YouTube video cleared any confusion.

This item worked fine. But the instructions from the manufacturer were vague and a little confusing. It was definitely the weak link in my install but the rest of the provided instructions from Crutchfield were excellent.

Pros: It worked.

has the parts you need but contains no instructions on how you need to use them or the fact you will need to remove and use some of the mounting hardware on factory radio. after many hours I was finally able to figure it out

Nice but needs brackets

Kyle from Easton, PA on 9/5/2016

1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

No blemishes on plastic and texture is nice. Three sizes permits custom fit. Overall nice product to make things easier. The instructions are not not clear and appear to be a photocopy of a photocopy a thousand times over. That said, it's easy to figure it out. I bought this for a 1986 Olds Cutlass 442 and the only disappointment is that it doesn't come with the side mounting brackets that hold the entire assembly to the dash. Make sure you save your old ones or buy a universal kit.

Pros: Aesthetics and price

Cons: No mounting brackets

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Its not bad for what it is but I was hoping it would help the radio blend in with the rest of the car, which it didn't at all. It actually made it look more out of place because it causes it makes the unit stick-out a bit eventhough there was more than enough space behind it..

Pros: Made a single-din radio fit a 1.5 din space

Cons: Does not blend in with the car. Could benefit from some recessed adapters/faceplate

It is nice and straight forward. Pick the correct front for your car and radio, bend the tabs to hold it in and your ready to go. Holds the radio nicely and looks good.

This thing makes a 1 din radio fit in like it would have from the factory. Gives everything a nice, clean look. The instructions were a bit difficult to understand but when I compared it to my old factory radio things came together fairly easily. I like that it comes with different plates to poke the radio out a bit if space is needed.

Pros: -Looks nice -Comes with plates to make it poke out if needed

Cons: -Instructions are a little hard to understand

Although the instructions didn't really tell me much for my specific make and model, I still rate this 5 stars. The in-dash reciever kit worked great after I figured it out. No issues at all whatsoever with the product itself.

Pros: Works great, price was good, pretty easy to figure out even with the lack of instructions provided for MY specific make and model. Just a simple puzzle piece that you need to put together. Watch a few YouTube videos and you'll have it all figured out.

Cons: Insutrctions sucked, but no big deal.

1990 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight Royale

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Biggest problem I had with this kit is if you are using an older unit that you have been swapping in and out of vehicles and you do not have the DIN mount that came with said unit you are fabbing up brackets. This means you are under the dash a lot longer placing unit in and out to try to make it look as good as possible. Would like to have found a face plate that had a small pocket in it, they had plenty of room to mold one into it. But hay for the price and I was able to find something for a 1990 Oldsmobile 88 Royale I should complain.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: No bracket options with kit, no pocket

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Looks better than expected. Bought this for my 90 Cadillac Coupe DeVille. Took some time to install since the bracket from the old stereo did not fit perfectly on the kit. Had to use a file to make an opening bigger so I could make it fit. Not too difficult though.

Pros: Looks good

Cons: Did not perfectly fit my car

GOOD PRODUCT - LIMITED DIRECTIONS

Dick from Destin, FL on 6/17/2012

1993 Cadillac DeVille

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have used this kit in other applications and already knew the "tricks" to getting it installed. Fit was perfect after I trimmed off 2 alignment tabs on the car's lower radio bracket that prevented its installation on the kit's chassis support cage. The installation instructions (diagrams) still need to be improved on this product to eliminate questions by the user.

Pros: Nice look and finish that goes well with most interiors. Completely covers the 1.5 DIN GM radio bay when installing a 1 DIN head unit.

Cons: Poor instructional materials. Had to be modified for my application.

Leaves things to be desired

BJ from Colorado on 5/6/2012

1989 Chevrolet Astro

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This item comes with everything but aftermarket brackets. The Crutchfield website clearly states that the mounting brackets from the factory stereo are required for proper installation. This item should just come with plastic replacement brackets as we did not have the original stereo and the item is dealer only, that of which is not stocked or manufactured anymore.

Pros: Comes complete as described and functions as intended ONLY when the factory brackets are present (from the original stereo, if you have it still).

Cons: Does not include plastic replacement brackets. This item auto ships from Crutchfield and was a waste of Crutchfield's time, money and shipping costs to send this item to me even though we knew ahead of time that it wasn't going to be sufficient to mount the radio since the factory brackets were missing.

Faceplate Adapter

RobertN from Ft Myers, Fl on 1/29/2012

1995 Buick Skylark

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Made for a very clean fit in a double din size opening. I was somewhat unsure during the assembly, but the finished product fit was great. Take your time, the instructions that come with it are very vague

Pros: Fit my car (Late 90's GM) like it was made for it specifically.

Cons: Has parts for more than one application and instructions are very vague.....even for someone who was an auto tech for 20+ years.

Not a complete install kit

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Ordered this to go with my new pioneer reciever in a 1989 Pontiac 6000. I was unable to use it though since the car no longer had the factory system in it to get the mounting brackets off of. The brackets to mount this kit to the dash are not included and they say to use the ones off of the factory stereo....that doesnt work when the factory stereo was pulled out years ago.

Pros:

Cons: No mounting brackets included.

This was really a no-brainer. When you have a double din spot in the dash and in my case a radio that was 1 inch deeper than what my Lumina had room for, this made the installation look professional and very simple.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

When I bought my new radio for my car, I bought this with it. Well, I had to buy a whole new kit because this was not able to secure the bracket in place. Everything else was fine but I could not secure the radio in so it was just sitting in the hole. It needs more instructions.

This has a nice clean look, but their are no instructions included. Luckly I put together several simular types of kits. I put an extra front panel in the back of the adapter to have a more stable frame since I will hit a few rocky dumps. This is nice and easy to put together if you have done it before.

As others have noted, the kit looks great, but comes with zero instructions. I figured it out eventually, but Crutchfield should fill in the gap here and make their own instructions for the dash kit.

What directions?

Herb from Bridgewater, NJ on 9/28/2010

1989 Buick Park Avenue

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

While the adapter kit worked quite well, the instructions were just about useless. They gave some direction but you were pretty much on your own to figure out the installation. I have used Crutchfield installation kits on several radio projects and have found them to be explicit and readily followed by the most inexperienced installer. Not so this GM kit. As I said, once you figure it out, the kit works and looks great, just be prepared to spend some grey cells trying to figure it out. If you're not good at problem solving, you might want to pay someone else to install this kit.

The only issue I had with this was some minor flashing had to be trimmed off with an exacto knife. (Flashing is the super thin pieces of plastic which leak out bewtween the mold halves). This was not a big deal at all - almost all plastic injection molded parts have flashing. Other that that, I don't know if you could ask for a better way to mount your new head unit!
