Just bought the one in the top pic from eBay Wink. A good bet would be a radio or cb mount, these are normally for land rover defenders etc, you can use as is or mod to get the angle of the second pic

Did you know that some mechless headunits fit without the need for the centre console or angled piece? Smile

Don't think there's any  'Pre-outs' on those mechless units...

Got 3 sets of pre-outs on mine for separate amps, subs and decent speakers  Twisted Evil .

cut the bottom half of the dash off where the ash try and power/lighter would of been, will mount the power/lighter in the new radio mount, and since i don't smoke, theirs no need for a ash tray
