good product great price
Little time consuming figureing out the univeralness of it. Fit great though
Only used one piece
Installed in a JVC 2din unit in a 2001 Honda Odyssey.
I ended up only using the rectangular bezel/surround piece (to cover the gaps between the unit and the dash cutaway.
The instructions are very messy, with steps not always clearly identified. Installation involves cutting away various tabs and pieces depending on your specific vehicle; this is tedious, and easy to get wrong. The side pieces have tabs sticking out which have holes where it is screwed to the vehicle. However, they seemed much flimsier than the metal brackets that came with the original radio, so I used the original ones instead. However, I do think the plastic ones would have gotten the job done, and probably would have made installing the bezel/surround piece easier.
My JVC unit actually came with its own bezel/surround piece, but it didn't quite fit the dash cutaway... had it fitted, I would not have needed this kit at all.
Doesn't Fit 2004 Honda CRV
Tried to install this in my 2004 Honda CRV-EX. Although the product description claims that it should be compatible, it isn't. I was replacing the original Honda double DIN CD changer with a single DIN player. The Sonic tech didn't believe me when I told him that it wasn't compatible. The mounting holes don't match the Honda, and it doesn't have a tray to fill in the empty space created when replacing the double DIN with a single.
Worked for me
I installed this in a 2000 Honda Accord EX with a Pioneer AVH-P3300BT DD DVD player. The only issue I had was cutting the center piece out, it wasn't very smooth. This is for a DD stereo, so why is it there? Otherwise, installed it, fit perfectly, no issues. Thanks for the free kit! Never any problems with Sonic, glad they can help, good prices, frequently the cheapest around.
Didn't even use for my installation, totally useless.
No wonder its free
Did not fit my car as stated it would. if I used this my deck would be receded at least 2 inches in the dash....
Used Factory deck mounts, just had to grind off 2 tabs.
2000 Honda accord coupe
perfect fits rite on tha point no space all....
Pros.Good color black and goes in perfect
Metra 95-7801 Double DIN Installation Dash Kit
Used this product to install Panasonic CQ-5800U Double DIN radio in a 2000 Honda CRV. All the parts needed to install the radio were included in this kit and required no alteration with the exception of the radio faceplate trim ring (square ring). This part required trimming of the interior as it was too narrow in both height and width. Trimming was time consuming and required patience so as to not break this thin fragile part. Once trimmed the square ring had gaps on all sides and made the installation look like a cheap aftermarket install.
Good product,wish the instructions was more detailed
Good product can't complain but the only thing is the instructions isn't full straight forward,it lacks a few details. The screws had to be trimmed down cuz they struck up to far and touch my double dins face trim.
On the other note you'll have to use your stock screws to hold the side panels to your new headunit. It doesn't come with any.
Good quality. Fits application (CRV) great. Made install easy to do.
Metra 95-7801 Trim Kit
I bought this for a 2004 Honda CRV double DIN replacement radio (a Soundstream 64 VRN HB). I ended up only using the outer trim frame, which helped fill the gap between the radio opening for the stock Honda radio, and our new Soundstream radio. I was able to make this work by grinding out the frame's inner plastic using a Dremel grinder until the frame would finally fit over the Soundstream. This took me about an hour of patient grinding and fitting. I also used my Dremel to cut off a couple of dimples on my factory-original steel side mounts, which allowed me to reuse them on the new Soundstream . The other plastic parts provide with the trim kit seemed fine for another application.
