i have a 69 camaro and i want to put a CD player in it, but i do not want to cut the origanal slot for an AM/FM radio but i do not want a CD changer cause they are a pain in the @$$. Any ideas? I was thinkin about mounting it in the front part of the console where the gauges are but i dont know. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!!

Inferno, I was thinking of getting a CD changer. Have you had some bad experiences with them? Erik

I have a Kenwood trunk mounted 10 changer CD in my '69. The face plate has everything (AM/FM, cassette, CD controls) and fits in original spot. Looks original at a quick glance, including the bowtie emblem.

Inferno, I mounted a jvc cd player in my 69 just right of the console under the dash. i had to make my own bracket and used the holes that were under the dash. keep it close to the console as possible. nobody has come close to kicking it with their feet. and it looks good and plenty of leg room.

I mounted a stereo/cd player in the glove box. I fabricated a special box out of light sheet metal, with a masonite back, then covered it with vinyl hide. With the glove box closed, the car still looks stock.

Like Gary I mounted a AM/FM CD player in my glovebox. I just modified the stock glovebox liner for installation. It is a Sony with a wired remote control. I mounted the remote in the ashtray and it clips on a mounting bracket so it is easily removed. I can leave the glovebox closed except when changing CD's by using the remote in the ashtray (with ashtray door open and remote sticking up and out). Get to car show, unhook the remote and turn upside down in ashtray and close ashtray door, close glovebox door and it looks all stock with the original AM radio still in the dash.
