considering your radio was stolen, i'm assuming you've pulled the dash apart to see the internals of the dash section before. I've thought about fabricating a little steel box, that mounts to the 'off-road' mount in the back, and the stronger parts of the dash. you'd basically have a little steel ammo box surrounding the radio, inside the DIN slot. If you make your own DIN adapter, theres plenty of room to surround a DIN radio with 1/8th steel, but 1/16th would probably work fine. Fab a little door on it, with a desk drawer lock on it, and your golden. add a little door strap or clip or something to keep it up/down without rattling when you're driving.
Ive got a detachable faceplate and I dont live in a high crime area anymore, so i'm not worried about it.
