I have a 1989 buick riviera with a CRT touch screen and a cassette player and I would really like to ditch the cassette player for a single din head unit. Has anyone tried anything like this with a 86-89 riv?

Probably going to have to go all custom unless someone like Metra has a mounting/dash kit. I am trying to remember what that dash looked like. Good luck! Sounds like a fun project.

I dont think any makes a mounting kit, or any kind of harness. I plan to run all new wires beacuse I dont want to cut in to the factory harness. I have a jvc kdlh1150 that I plan to install. Heres a pic on a dash, this is not mine, but exactly the same as mine.



I think I will make a filler panel where the cassette player is and put the HU the mounting depth might be a problem.
