Default Bracket for Switch Panel

So i bought this switch panel awhile back and its just sitting where my radio used to be

I've been trying to think of a way to mount it using the holes from the screws for the radio but i can't figure it out. I don't think it would be too secure if i just cut a hole in some sheet metal and hold it that way. Any ideas? Thanks

wouldn't one of these work? looks like the opening might just be the same size. if not, a slight modification may work.

I'd go with what rzldzl says. It looks like a din and a half, so if you get a single din your have enough extra material to make it a good snug fit.

Thanks guys, but do you think it would stay in the bracket? I don't think it would really snap in

maybe not in the particular bracket that i posted, unless you trim the plastic away. or you can get a metal bracket that should work.

nothing is gonna be plug and play, you will likely have to trim the bracket to the opening you need to fit the switch panel properly.

or you can make your own.

I'd install the radio and put the switch panel somewhere else...

I originally had the radio, but I went to put a new one in and it kept coming up with a "miswire" error so I had a Bluetooth speaker i I just use that
