I recall having heaps of problems using the factory headunit brackets to accommodate for an aftermarket deck - I fabricated some brackets for both my EL and the gf's EL too. From my experience, lots (if not most) aftermarket decks have great provision for installing into Jap cars, but little for our Falcs. If you are able to just 'plug and play' so to speak - I'd love to hear what you did and what deck you fitted =D
Yeah, it really is a bit of an effort doing it. My only advice to people wanting to do this is to not rush it - take the time to make fabricated brackets or "modify" *read chop up* the factory ones. Good for the guys with the EA-ED's though !
