    Yes I had to trim the sides of the face about 1/16 of an inch on both sides. Also had to remove the rails the radio was supposed to fit between but couldn't. 3 screws per rail. I also put some Velcro strips down on the metal plate and bottom of the radio. I've had ZERO issues with movement

    I used a sharp utility razor knife, just kept shaving a little bit off each side till it finally fit. Then I shaved just a tad more to square and clean it up. It was a slow and messy process. Took about 30 minutes maybe a tad longer.

    No I removed the tray completely, it is just velcroed to the metal plate.
