Hi Tom57 - with regard to your mounting the IC400Pro - Many vehicles have a 'double DIN' opening in the dash. A lot of Japanese 4x4's have a radio head unit mounted in one and a pocket in the other.
I have used the space taken by the pocket on many vehicles that I've owned and used it for mounting a UHF radio
. Some Electrophone models were a DIN size (eg TX4200) however the Icom is smaller than DIN size and this can present a problem.
Recently I fitted an Icom in my wife's Terios - simply by removing and doing away with the pocket below the radio/cd and used an Icom MB 400 DIN kit from Prestige Communications . The kit consists of an adjustable faceplate and 2 side mounting brackets that will take up the difference in width between the Icom and the DIN radio bracket. Comes complete with a good assortment of screws, nuts and washers to make the finished installation very neat.
Can send you a pic if you want.
