1.5 din?

Just wondering if there's such things as 1.5 din HU's. The noob who had my car before me left the stock unit in as well as putting in a CD player, so it looks like this, sorry about it being so big, forgot to resize it.



I'd like to replace the crappy CD player and have a pocket in there, but it looks to me like i'd need a 1.5 din pocket...am I imagining things or can you get that?

with mine i have a 1 DIN HU with a i DIN pocket and 2 spaces looks to be 0.5 DIN. i have a spacer (looks home made and just stuck on) then the hu then the pocket then the other spacer. i dont know if this helps. also not sure if you can get a 1.5 din pocket, if you can i think i might be looking into getting one aswell

Thanks Stewy, if I can't find 1.5 din pockets i'll be going with what you said.

Platypus: 0.5 din spacers Stewy said, not pockets. 0.5 din pockets probably wouldn't hold much, heh.

yeah i said 0.5 din spacers and andrew mine is up the top so i dont have that prob but i would think that it would be annoying because if im going into 1,3,5 and someone trys to change song i hit them with the gear stick hehe.

yeah well i actually made a peice of wood and sanded it and painted it black n put that at the very bottom, there was some screw holes allready in the back of the Ummm black peice of dash that went around it.
then i had the pocket, which i had to lightly sand off all edges to get it to fit
and then the head unit at the top, which i also had to sand that plastic bit that goes around the outside of the head unit.
was a bit of a pain but definatly worth it
it actually looked like i DIDNT do it when it was all finished heheh

you can get a 0.5 din pocket - but spacer is probably more appropriate
