    The cassette player in my zx2 just jammed up. I want to upgrade to an aftermarket cd head unit, but where are you supposed to put it? the ac controls are connected to the factory tape deck, so would i have to custom make a dash panel to hold the cd player and ac controls? or would it be easier to get a factory cd player from a junkyard? Any suggestions?

    factory CD players are hard to find around here, im sure you can find one on ebay if you look, but they're not worth the money for the sound quality IMO.

    there are a few places that sell the adapter which fit in the oval where your stock radio is. metra is the brand that i can remember. crutchfield.com sent me mine for free when i bought from them a few years back.

    jlo, don't they only cost $30-40..?

    I don't think you are going to easily find them for much less than that.
