ALPINE iDA-X305 Install *Edited from problems to done*

I'm attempting to install an Alpine iDA-X305 head unit in place of my Business radio. I purchased everything I needed from Crutchfield and tried the install this afternoon. The stereo works problem, but I can't seen to fit it into the console. The PAC OEM-2 and all the wires take so much space behind the head unit that I can't get it closer than 2-3 inches of where it needs to sit. Does anyone have any advice for making this work? There just seems to be no room back there.

I'd appreciate any help at all. This is my first attempt at a car stereo install.

*UPDATE*

I completed the install and provided a quick review of the head below
