CD Player in Sunglass holder

I want to keep a OEM look(for now) but i want to install a single din cdplayer... do u think it will fit in the sunglass holder of a y2k av6? i think i saw it done once at sounddomain.com but i can't remember... anyways.. if u think it can be done, how much do u think to would cost?

there's no way it would fit up there. behind the holder is the roof. I've seen 3 different EQs up there, and a v-afc, but those are less than 2"s thick(I've seen a fosgate symmetry, a pioneer deq-9200 and an alpine SFC all with remote faces). Those are single din width and height, but less than 2" depth which fits perfect in the glasses holder, a cd WILL NOT fit at all, unless you want a huge bulging console overhead. Just order the 3rd din pocket and call it a day.

not sure if this pic will show up but this is symmetry epx2 notice how thin the remote display is


here's the alpine SFC

Yup you would pretty much only be able to put the face up there. get one with a detachable face, and install the radio normally. Then have the shop use the factory face of the radio as a cover. so that way when you look inside itll still look all stock.
