Maybe check Crutchfield? I don't think I used one on my 94. The aftermarket deck basically fit just fine, but there was a little slot left at the top. I used a thin strip of plastic painted to match the dash that just slid uper the deck's bezel to fill the slot. Cheers!

There is no reason for a dash kit on the obs dash. Lyons it sounds like you may be missing the "cage" for your radio. Sony, pioneer, Alpine, Kenwood, JVC etc.... all have different cages for their particular brand. With the appropriate cage locked into your dash opening, your radio should slide into it and lock into place. That will also require you to have the keys for the particular cage to remove the radio. If you have a car audio shop where you live they will probably have extra cages in the back and would sell you one cheap or give it to you if they are cool. Just make sure its for your model radio or it will NOT lock it in. If you do not like the gap that is left around the edge of the radio you can also pick up a single din abs trim ring. Metra Online | Metra Kits Trim Rings it will have to be ground down a little on the outside edge to fit but makes for a much cleaner look. The cage goes through the trim ring and secures to the dash before the radio goes in. Again, car audio shop should stock this stuff. Good luck
