Subject: Re: cd player for 92 900S - Changer installation

I saw a nice implementation with a cd changer mounted in the rear seat drivers side arm rest of a '91 SPG. The molded interior panel was cutout just in the top surface where you might rest your left arm if sitting behind the driver. The multi disc cassette could be dropped in by the driver (if your limber enough). There is an enormous void inside this panel.
