Fitting a stereo

From a previous thread, I now know how to cut a hole in the console.

My question today is that once I have cut my perfect oblong hole for the stereo, and slotted it in having fitted the waterproof flip up cover that I bought already, ...what method of supporting the stereo unit (a cheap car one) should I use? I don't imagine it will be be sufficient support just slotting it in?

Any suggestions very much welcomed

When our Bayliners arrive they have a metal bar secured to the back of the stereo going to the bulkhead on the boat. This then holds it up. Not sure where on your console you could attach one without having a screw showing somewhere. Unless you stick it with epoxy or similar

I recently fitted a VHF Radio (Same size as a stereo) and that came with a couple of brackets that attached to the side of the Radio. A bolt from each of these went forward and was tightened up against the bulkhead.

Failing this why not visit Halfords they do loads of gear for all the boy racers that want to modify their cars where the present dashboard needs to be modified. Just a thought.

Whatever you do try and use Marine metalwork for all your fixings.
