well first off you'll have to cut the bezel out some quit a bit actually and then you can actually fill in the hole with fiberglass and bondo or somehow to make it square or you can do what I did and make the hole contour to the factory curves and just make a trim ring to go around your radio they also sell these trim rings in different sizes i just made mine out of 1/4 mdf and covered it in suede ill post some pic tomorrow.

also on securing you can either bend some mild sheet metal in to an l bracket looking thing or use some mounting strap that can be purchased at walmart for 1.50 I used mounting strap as I had it lying round
