Any good stereo shop should have the kit you need. Or, you can order one from Crutchfield.

I would go to a reputable shop to install anything on the Bonnie. The electronics are soo finicky.

True, on the newer models, but not on a '92 SE. And I speak from first-hand experience. Install it yourself, it'* pretty easy.

Default Stereos

You might want to look at a unit thats made to fit the opening in your dash. Pioneer and Jenson currently make units to fit. This is what I'm lookin to do in my car. Remember when changing head units you loose the ability to use your steering wheel controls.

I've heard of a few head units that has some interface that will workwith the steering control... I think it was Kenwood or Alpine ?? I"m not quite sure on that, but on another note.. yes, I notice most stock units are quite huge with huge openings. I"d like to know what people have done or could suggest what to do with the large opening if you went with a smaller sized head unit. I use to get a thin peice of board and matching colored carpet to cover the surrondings of the head unit in my Cavalier.. before it got broken into.
