yeah, yeah, i know it's on the wrong side :P
from the back of the dash (there's a number written on it, check the pic) to the dash trim plate there are about 19cm to work with. cd-players are around 15-16 cm deep (from the bottom to the trim ring) so there's enough room.
i know for sure i can push my alpine deep in the dash. but i will have a lot of trouble with the wiring...where will i fit 6 runs of rca's ?
right now i have a blaupunkt cassete player with a totaled display in there. comes right out, trouble free.
there's a part of the dash just behind the whinpy trim plate. seems like a solid place to mount some L-brackets. that way, to remove the hu you will have to remove the whole trim plate.
