Default modified dash...

Well someone broke into my car and jacked my head unit (ok sony). Now having to consider what head unit I want is a big pandora'* box in and of itself.
BUT
While looking at the BIG 1.5 din space... and the VERY similarly sized slot for the climate controls... has anyone used the space for the climate controls as a location for say a CB or ham radio...
I am still measuring but it looks to me like there is about 3 DIN WORTH OF SPACE for electronics in the dash. :
Has anyone considered this?
A 1-din dvd head unit and 2 din display permanantly mounted? or in dash computer (touchscreen)?
a mini mac is about 1 din right?

I am sorry to hear that your radio got stolen. I tell ya, getting you car broken into is one of the worst feelings in the world. It makes you look at even the old lady across the street as a suspect

are you saying to maybe cut out everything in between the HU and ECC? Maybe I read that wrong.

Star...Randman is the answer to your questions. He dropped a double din into his 93 SSEi and it looked factory.
