    i think so. A friend of mine used to have a jeep and the cd player was in the center console facing up. No problems.

    Re: will this custom mount work?

    the simple answer is no. the long answer is no. you have to buy a cd player that is listed as okay for vertical mounting. Most cd players will only work a few degrees off of horizontal, like less than a 30 degree tilt. Sony makes a couple that will work 60 degrees off of horizontal.

    What i have seen done is to buy a cd player with a removeable face plate, and mount the face plate in the dash where you want. run a cable to connect the faceplate to the chassis, and hide the chassis wherever you want to.

    the cd on most cd players id held in place by magnetic devices IIRC, and they usually are not strong enough to make the cd player hold the cd in a vertical mount

    as hard as it is for you to solder some wires to all the connections

    I'd try and get a new window and alarm. Did your window get smashed in or what?
