[DML] DIN Stereo Mounting Plates (was: Re: Radio)

Bear in mind, that while you can easily cut your stock radio mounting
bracket to accept a newer DIN-size unit, the original mounting
brackets are a "short supply" item. We have a limited number of them
available from cars that we remanufacture or company cars here that
get new stereos and therefore a new DIN-cutout radio mounting bracket.
 Think twice before cutting up one of the few remaining originals, the
day may come when you (or someone else) would like to have it.
