Nope nether of them....its just the black plastic plate and i made the hole to fit the radio, but it leans back and with all the movement of the car, it turns on then off, plays for a bit them turns off, gets hot cause i think its leaning on the floor...lmao...

but i think the metal sleave should work to get it off the floor huh? i would prefer a plastic sleeve to slide it in and hold in place.

at least run a piece of strap from the bolt on back of radio to the dash support (metal) or bolt other end to the floor. This bolt is for supporting the radio, but also grounds the casing, which is important, and prolly why it keeps turning on/off!

I learned a couple of years ago that no stereo shop carries anything for G bodies anymore. Or deck speakers for that matter. Brandsmart could get me the 5x7s I needed. eBay it was. Happiness is just a click away.
