    Whats the best way to cut up the dash in a 83 GMC to mount the CD player in the stock radio location. Also I would like to mount some speakers in the door, I just planned on cutting the doors with the same tool.

    If it's a 2 post, then a cut off wheel on a drill works pretty good.

    What Z3PR said, "Cut-off wheel." I tried a jigsaw once, came out looking like shite!

    If you use the cutoff wheels then it'll work fine. Dremels were made for that sort of work. /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif
