Stereo and CB Radio

What do you guys think of this:

Using a Double DIN install kit and a lot of dremel work, I was able to install my CB and Stereo in the Dash!

Nice......... But hows does the CD player open. looks like the CB is in the way. Also it looks like the cb is sticking out a bit far.

It opens far enough to get the CD in and out ... that's enough for me.
Yeah, the CB does stick out a bit, but there's no more room behind to push it any further in.

Looks awesome. I always wanted to do that but went straight to a double din and not single din.

It took a lot of trial and error and dremel tool use.
the Cobra 29 is a bit bigger than DIN size. So, I had to cut the Double DIN brackets for just the stereo, and then trim the bezel to get the CB in. Using the cut off brackets from the double DIN, I attached the CB to the stereo. Maybe when I get the antenna hooked up, I'll try to get it to sit deeper in the dash, and I'll take pics on how I bracketed everything.

I was able to slide the CB back a bit, and I pulled the Stereo out to match, and it looks excellent. I will get some photos of how it looks in there later. It sux that I used one of the largest CBs available, but if you use a smaller CB, I've seen DIN adaptors for them, and it would have fit much better.
