Radio install kit general question

First of all I bought a Scoshe brand install kit. I can only assume the Metra is very similar.

The rectangle face plate has two side pieces that attach to the face plate with two screws and those in turn attach to the stereo. The original radio mounting screws screw into those pieces to mount the stereo securely.

The face plate is too wide to attach everything together and slide the radio in place because the face plate is wider that the metal radio mounting bracket.

What was/ is your solution for fitting it into place?

Mine was to assemble it together making sure it lined up. I then took the face plate off and slide the stereo into near position and slid the face plate in from the side of the metal bracket between the front of it and the inner fairing and reattaching the face plate screws from the sides.

I did not use that install kit, but on mine, the HU slid in through the front of the inner fairing, while the mount was attached from behind the inner fairing.
