wierd stereo position *updated*

well im sure you guys know that on the 92 - whatever year, the stereo was just to the right of the steering wheel then farther right of that is the tape deck thing. was wondering what my options are with this set up. buddy of mine said that a friend of his took his stereo next to his steering wheel out and put a little cubby hole there then replaced the tape deck with the aftermarket deck, i was thinking that was a good idea but im not sure where i can get a cubby hole like that? if someone could point me in the right direction i would appreciat it

or can i just take out the OEM stereo and throw a aftermarket deck there? it doesnt look like it will fit tho but i guess i might as well ask since i found a cubby hole that would replace the tape deck lol

thanks to anyone that can give me some help.

if i go into best buy or a stereo place are they going to make me have them install it? money is kinda tight and i like to do my own stereo stuff just so i know whats going on with it and i can make sure there isnt any wires hanging loose that shouldnt be and all that good stuff.

well over the last couple of nights i tackled the project of getting the new head unit in and wiring amp/sub.

putting the headunit in was the hardest since it has 2 sub units that have all the buttons and tape deck and i guess even some had an EQ? but anyway they run into the main box in the dash, which you must drop and unplug everything and plug that stuff into the wiring harness then run the wires up to where the tapedeck/EQ was then wire it all up, which sound simple but for me it was very frusterating, my hands are kinda big and there is a stupid bracket in there that keeps the deck from sliding all the way back, i have yet to fix it...

the sub and amp where much easier but again i had to drop the old stereo box in the dash down so i could run the remote turn on and the amp rca wires past it. just thought i would let everyone know that i did get it done, im sure for someone that puts in stereos all day it gets pretty easy but i really prefer the method of pull the old deck out throw the wiring harness on and wire it up and put the new unit it.

i still havent got the little cubby hole to replace the old radio so its still just sitting there not working

thanks for your help you guys! really appreciate it!
