Find an early metal bezel.  The later ones are plastic.  The metal ones are much easier to install a din style radio in as they are more rigid.  Unfortunately I do not have any spares at this time.  Ask Fred if he has any.

Gerhard I know but only metal one I have left was cut inside. I will check a 73 tomorrow that went down I-10 upside down in 83. Thanks though.   Fred   :)

If you don't have the brace that bolts to the back of a real Pinto radio, don't use the plastic one as by its self, its not strong enough. Try for the medal one.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.
