You can bolt it in or do like I did and use zip ties. Make sure you are gentle so you dont break any of the flimsy plastic

I had to buy the inserts for the dash from GM Parts Direct, part # 17988488. Then you can just use a 3/4" x 6 sheet metal screw.

There are a few square holes on the left and at least one on the right side of the opening. I dont have a good pic... These little metal contraptions snap into these holes becoming anchors built into the dash support. I'm thinking there may have been one in my car already, so I only had to use 2 of them that I bought, they come in packs of 5. I also went with a D-DIN head unit so it just had one bracket for each side of the head unit. Here'* what I put in...

looks good! i got the kit with single din with a pocket cubby. i like the cubby for putting my usb connection for my ipod..also good place for ipod to be out of way.

now just have to figure out my wiring harness and i will be ready for stereo install. normally the rest of the stereo is time consuming...this car though, getting the radio is looks to be biggest pain.... having battery in rear makes it a breeze to wire up amps in trunk and such.

thanks!
