Does anyone have a write up with pics on how to install a radio in the glove box? I want to relocate mine but have no idea where to start. I dont have the cardboard that goes inside the glovebox. Any ideas would help

I am pretty sure this is a members car and I wish I knew who it was as they deserve credit. I believe this is a first gen but it may give you an idea.
Best of luck with your project.

I would approach it like the pictures acd65post posted. Use some thin poster board for templates, transfer it over to steel and see what might be needed to be changed for your use.

As for as accessing the new radio, get a radio with a wireless remote control. Then buy an IR (infrared) repeater system. With this you can keep the glove box lid closed and with the original remote for the new radio control things like volume, radio station presets, CD tracks, source control, and so on. I've used IR repeaters from Aamp of America under part number PVIRT.

There's no need to make a template all the way to the firewall (unless I'm misunderstanding your question). You just want to make a baffle or mounting plate to hold the front portion of your new radio. The back end of the radio will be supported with some flat stock steel or a backbrace material.
