I saw a photo of someone's riv but cannot find the post I've been trying for a while, where a little storage compartment is made where the cassette/cd holder is. does anyone know how that can be done?

I picked up a compartment from a local car audio place, the opening is a standard single din size.
I just clamped it in place epoxied the sides & used silicone adhesive on top & bottom, it is very well attached.

So a little update, I took the casette holders out but the single din drawer won't fit. Does anyone know one that would? Also since I had to take out the holder for the casette holders out too there is really no good way to glue the drawer to something that could hold it, pretty confused here...

Did you remove the mounting bracket that holds the cassette drawers? It requires melting the joints or breaking them on the back side. That should widen the opening enough to fit a single din drawer.

I am looking at one of these:

I hate the "Free Box" label on the front, so I hope it comes off.

Yes it went out easy, clean break. I am looking at that one too, I tried the Walmart GM "single or double din set" and i couldnt get it to stick cause the area touching the plastic is too thin it almost goes through; what I am worried about is how to support it from the sides and bottom. the space inside the console is huge

I did not use a drawer, it was a simple compartment & I mounted it from behind.
Similar to this one:

That looks like a nice kit! Can you post a pic of yours installed?

I had posted them previously, but don't have access to those pics since Imageshack started to have a monthly fee. Sorry, I dont know if or when I could post again.
