[Vwdiesel] Stereo DIN mount

The new metal boxes all have bendable tabs in them.  You cut the hole in the 
plastic dash fascia to carefully fit EXACTLY the width x heighth of the box. 
The outer LIP of the box cannot be pushed through this hole.  Now, push the 
box into the cutout hole, make sure the lip is firmly seated, and then bend 
out as many tabs as you can.

My radio has needed no other support from the rear.
