I don't have any pictures but I can explain what you need to trim to make it fit... Once you pull the stock deck out you'll see exactly what I'm talking about.

There's a metal bracket that goes along the top of the stock HU. That's the bracket that needs to be cut out. you will also need to trim the plastic a bit to get the new HU to slide in. There are a few different ways of doing that. The first is to just cut the plastic in between the two bolt holes on each side (where the colour changes) to let it spread apart enough to slide the HU in. Then when you screw in the deck it holds everything back together. That's the easiest way. The next way would be to slowly trim the top and bottom plastic until you have enough room. More time consuming and definitely harder to do because of the lack of space.

ditto to above...i just did one in my 2012 this week. theres a bolt in the center of the metal piece, that holds the dash down. youll take that out first. Theres also two metal clips that are for the dash to screw into also, remove them first. I didnt and they vibrated out when sawing and lost them in no mans land. then i made two cuts with a sawzall (one on left and one on right), use a thin kerf blade. be careful not to shake your dash apart! i trimed the top and bottom of the plastic with the same tool. pretty easy!
