I got mine done last night and it came out great, put the stock radio back in place and thank god for the factory pocket the other one sucked. I about lost all the skin on my hand when ever I tried to use it. It is weird to get used to the factory position headunit not being the one that controls everything. Plus since I have the blue LED alpine it was a little bright in the dash.
Really great post thanks for the resource.
The line you swore you would never cross is the one you already crossed when you didn't think anybody was looking.
Yes you can. My good friend has his stock head unit and hios aftermarket up there. His aftermarket is a hide away model. When its off it flips around and looks like nothing is there so if you glance in his window all you see is his factory head unit.
you can barely see it. But its down there. I put my Tape deck in its place. (it is not din sized, the gap for the AC controls) which allowed space for my DIY dvd holder. Now I have a WRX radio inside. Submergered real half ass hanging by zipties (cause it is double din) and my civic is 98 so I dont have double din. But my DVD holder still works.
man i just want to thank you guys for this thing. first thing i did to the civic when i got it as my daily driver. looks GREAT. and yeah i have had it that way for a couple weeks, and i still try and turn off the old head unit.

the side brackets is use to mount the deck, there are screw holes that you can screw in some screws to hold up the deck. the front surrounding part is bolt on to the car and the brackets is bolted on to the surrounding part.
i have a 96 civic and my car does not have the rotary bottons. instead it has the push buttons of the climate control. does anyone know the part number for a single din block off plate? i have tried 5 hondas within my area and all they can tell me is the picture shows for it on the computer, but no part number is available. any help would be greatly appreciated.
