Pioneer DEH 7550 in an AU2 dash

Help needed! Just connected up all the wiring and sounds great but how are you supposed to fit a basically flat faced head unit and get it to look good on the curved fascia of the AUs. None of the tags you bend out on the frame line up with any position to mount it properly either.
Has anyone done this, is there an aftermarket surround you can get for the AUs and are there any tricks to mounting it flush?

Put the new headunit in the top, then you can buy a pocket from Ford Spare Parts (about $30)

You have to ask for the pocket from a Series 1 AU with standard audio.

Should look something like this

You don't really drive a holden, more like sit in it while the wheels slowly go around

Thanks Panda, did what you said already, but yours seems to fit a bit neater, maybe the tags on your frame line up better on your model Pioneer. On mine it sits about 5mm further in and highlights the gaps around the edges more, and also very tight on room at the back with the RCA leads.
