did you make sure to clip the tabs on the top (or is the the AI kit? i can't really remember)? or was it a flap face problem? i've owned all 3 and they all worked for my pioneer flip faces (regular and motorized) but i have to say i liked the looks of the metra way bettter than the american international and scosche.

Is there anywhere that gives an overall explanation of this? I'm not sure that I understand exactly what is needed to be done.
