I'd like to get the CD player from you if you are interested in selling it cheaply, just the same. It works better than mine as mine will only eject and not insert a CD anymore. It would have to be after you get a new one in there. The deal with the lower DIN hole is to go to a junkyard and get something else to go there. Cars without an amplifier got a fuzzy din sized cubby to go there (900 and 9000). Another option is to get a din gage plate and 3 gages (temp, press, amp?) to go in one of the holes. One more would be to get a din EQ/amp for it. As I see it, those are your 3 options. KeithG BigFatGuy wrote: > Thanks for the heads up about the amp.
