I have been trying to install a readio in my geo for a while and i can't find a mounting bracket that is any good... i have purchased a vehicle specific mounting bracket from an audio store locally but its basically a piece it together pile of crap.. i need to know where to get one or other options you guys have done. Thanks

Those "piece it together pile of crap" mounting kits normally work pretty good for me. I ordered one from Autozone and it went together nicely. Now I just need to get that one installed.

I have a 99, its the same as the 95, but I don't know about earlier. I believe the kits work with all the double dins.

I had one in my newer car and it came from an audio install place, one piece. Recently I had picked up a new one though as the new has a pocket for under the reciever.

I paid around $13 from Walmart, but I have yet to install to see if it actually fits. I believe it is 2 pieces and it is made by scosche?

don't know if that helped, but check sprawl mart, and the multi-multi pieces are crap.

Isn't your 93 a single DIN unit? If so you should just have to mount the cage and bend the tabs to install the deck.

These are pretty much the standard. They aren't bad and work for a lot of other people. You may be able to find one of the Scosche mounts with a 1/2 din pocket in it though.

Mine was a Metra kit and seemed to be pretty nice.
