What would be the easiest way to mount a cd player in my glove box, not the ghetto way with just tyin it down, but mountin wood in it, than mountin the cd player in it, what would be the easiest way to do this in a 87 caprice, so i can keep it lookin original, i know how to do the wiring n shit but n e pics of n e ones done for ideas or how to's?

ive seen and read a couple of these posts, and i still dont understand why would someone mount a cd player in the glove compartment?

i tried to justify it by saying, maybe there isnt an opening on the dash to mount one, but the i said, why now build a mount to attach to the bottom portion of the dash....

thank god for remotes and cd changers i guess, that be the only way to operate the HU safely...

im wantin to put mine in the glove box to make the interior look stock n clean...
gotcha ;) ... so for like a '63, you would place it in the glove box so that it still looks as if it has its old school radio, and all...

i get ya, but what about the '90 and up vehicles, what the reason there...

well, if your really that depserate, and still wanna install one in the glove box, i'll recomend a few things you could do and buy, first off, your gonna have to run all your own power wires, unless your gonna try to use the stock wiring harness somehow...

something like that, and you can use your imagination on how to make a piece that makes it cover the whole opening of the glove box.
